Reports indicate that the middle-aged woman runs her sales on the working capital of just GHC200 (R600), which is very little given the current economic situation in Ghana.

According to Diana Danso, the little amount she makes from her hawking takes care of her two children together with her herself.

It is not exactly clear whether the middle-aged woman has a husband or what happened to the father of the children but it is obvious from the report that there is no man who provides her with any assistance.
