Meet The Women
Alice Korsah started Jehovah Jireh Fashions in a tiny space in Cape Coast, but struggled with competition and late-paying clients.
Alice Korsah, Seamstress
Batiking & Sewing Center (Cape Coast)
A multi-talented artisan, Alice Korsah is a seamstress and a batiker. Also an entrepreneur, Alice opened "Jehovah Jireh" in a tiny rented room while she was in her early twenties. She prides herself on reliability and nurtures strong customer relations by proving to her customers that they can depend on her for high quality work and timely completion. This philosophy has enabled Alice to gradually grow her business and bring on apprentices. Even with her solid reputation, Alice has found great challenges in growing her enterprise as the local market is saturated with seamstresses who sew custom-fit clothes. While working with Global Mamas, Alice has increased her savings with Progressive Women's Credit Union so that one day she can take on a loan to expand to a larger store. As of June 06, she has saved 4 million cedis (~US $350), and has qualified for a loan from the credit union to contribute to the cost of increasing her store merchandise.
