Garbe Mohammed has sold and traded beads across West Africa his whole working life.
His father and grandfather before him were also bead merchants, and his great-grandfather before that. When his son leaves school, he too will work in the family business.
“In Ghana here, we make glass beads, powdered glass beads, and other beads too,” he says.
“We [also] collect them from other African countries, here at the Koforidua beads market.”
