Edith Mawuena Kukekpor

EDITH MAWUENA meaning “God’s gift” is a single mother living with her grandfather in the village. She was a founding student who earned a scholarship to study dressmaking at Atorkor Vocational Training Institute. She says attending AVTI was the best thing that happened to her. She realised she could have her own business and no longer needed to sell fish and her grandfather’s bananas on the street. Her dream is to set up her dressmaking business in a small container. Edith has a colourful, individual dress sense; a lively sense of humour and joyful laughter often surrounds her. She is an encouraging and strong co-op member often assisting others.
