Some traders at the Kaneshie Market in Accra are very optimistic of better business in the year 2013 as compared to 2012.
In an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Friday, the traders stated that trading activities had not been encouraging throughout this year, “because this was an election year, business had been very slow.”
Auntie Abena Atta, a foodstuff seller, noted that business only began to pick up after the elections when people rushed in to stock their kitchens for the Christmas festivities. “I only made sales during the festivities and it is not enough”.
Mama Victoria Abban who owns a cosmetics shop told the GNA that she had managed to sell out most of the wigs that she had in stock specifically for the season.
“I know ladies would want to change their looks for the Christmas so I went in for a variety of wigs and I sold them by the Grace of God, I pray that business will be okay next year so that we will make more money” she said.
Paa Kofi Asare, a Shoe Repairer explained that he had no cause to complain as long as he was able to get his daily bread at the close of each day, expressing the hope to own a shop in 2013.
