I want to be a soldier – Abena agyeiwaa, a female pragya rider

The love for military work has been a motivational factor for 23-year-old Abena Agyeiwaa to venture into a male-dominated Tricycle (Pragya) business.

The activity of Abena Agyeiwaa caught the eyes of many as she pushed through the Pragya business in the streets of Asankrangwa in the Wassa Amenfi West Municipality in the Western Region since it is rare to find a female in that venture.

But Agyeiwaa happily starts her business in the early hours on daily bases without any sign of fear or panic.

In an interview, Abena Agyeiwaa told Ahobraseye FM’s Kaakyire that her decision to venture into the business is to find livelihood without depending on anyone since her first Mobile Money business failed.

“I was at Toase Senior High School when I got information about Cocoa Pollination, so I rushed back to Asankrangwa to register, so immediately I wrote my last paper in 2018, I didn’t sleep, I came straight to join the pollination initiative,” she said.

I ventured into Mobile Money business when the government relieved us of the pollination and the MoMo business too started to dwindle.” she added.

Agyeiwaa told Ahobraseye News that her decision to ride the tricycle is to amass an amount of GHC 16,000 to enable her to pursue her dream of becoming an army officer.

“There’s this relative who is in the military and he informed me of a protocol into the enlistment but said it would require an amount of Ghc16, 000 but I don’t have that kind of money, neither do I have a helper so I decided to do this at all cost so that is my reason,” she said.

About her marital life, Agyeiwaa indicated that he had known only one man in her life with whom she has one child, but her would-have-been mother inlaw stood against her relationship with the teacher because she rides a tricycle.

She said she doesn’t want to depend on any man to have a sexual relationship before getting a daily bread.

On some challenges she faced as the only female rider in the Amenfi West Municipality, most people, especially women do not want to board her due to fear that she might have some evil intention to lure children and kidnap them, but Agyeiwaa said she is not perturbed and her determination to join the ‘Men in Green’ cannot be shaken over that.
