Meet the Ghanaian woman selling ‘koobi’ in US and building hotels in Ghana

A Ghanaian entrepreneur, Josephine Maame Fosua Papabi, has opened up about her life as a businesswoman, wife, and mother living in the United States.

The mother of two girls and a boy runs a guest house in Ghana and owns an African shop in Ohio State where she sells African-made clothing, hair, and food items, including salted tilapia dried fish, locally referred to as ”koobi”.

Aside from the guest house, Fosua Papabi and her husband plan to operate their 25-bedroom hotel in Ghana next year.

In an interview with Zion Felix, Fosua Papabi revealed that she met her husband in Germany and later moved to the US.

The Ghanaian entrepreneur who works as a pharmacy technician in the US admitted that combining her work and running businesses in the US and Ghana have affected the quality of time she spends with her husband.

”Life in Ghana is flexible, but it’s not the same in the US. When you wake up, you’re off to work and back home.

I hardly meet my husband; unless I make time to meet my husband, we hardly meet because when I return home from work, he sets off to work,” she said.

The hotelier credits God for her achievements, adding that she has defeated several challenges through prayers and determination.

On raising her children in the US, the mother of three admitted that raising her children outside Ghana has been difficult because of the cultural differences between the two nations.
