Freda Esiawonam Nyanyovor
FREDA ESIAWONAM means “This is what they have given me.“ Freda is 26 years old and married to a fisherman. She has 3 girls all under 3, and she doesn’t want any more so she can raise enough money to pay for their education. She earned a scholarship to Atorkor Vocational Training Institute graduating as the top student in dressmaking theory. She had planned to continue her education but having three children changed everything so she is now determined and working hard to set up her own local dressmaking business. Freda sells lunches at the AVTI canteen for extra income. Her bright and ready smile lights up a room and she is kept busy with her young family often assisted by her widowed mother.
