Ghanaian female businesswoman, Sandra Ozwald, is the founder and CEO of Saint Ozwald Shoes, a shoe-making company that produces Italian standard quality wear.
Coming from an economically challenged background at Sunyani, Sandra has defeated daunting obstacles and is now a successful entrepreneur.
Sandra had a difficult childhood. Briefly.co.za gathered that she started school late because of financial setbacks and struggled throughout her junior and senior high school education.
After she completed senior high school, Sandra decided to turn the lemons life offered her into lemonade. She looked within herself for solutions and decided to start a shoe-making business.
A teenager at the time, Sandra started learning shoe-making from a local shoemaker at a local shop and later decided to start her own business.
She personally began her shoe-making journey from a family storage room with a sewing and scouring machine she borrowed.
In 2013, she officially started her business which has now gained prominence as a brand.
Saint Ozwald Shoes is one of the most celebrity-endorsed locally made shoe brands in Ghana.
