Mama speaking to the women, laid much emphasize on problems relating to their occupations and the roles of the women in the development of the community.

Women also lament on lack of credit facilities to get them back to their petty trading tracks. Some lost as much as Ghc20,000 through the tidal waves disaster that happened in the community and they’re struggling to get back on their feet.
In response to the issues, Mama called on financial institutions to come to their aid by extending credit facilities to her women. She also encouraged them not to give up for there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The Queen felt bad about the hardship her people, especially women are going through as a result of the tidal waves disaster and appeal to the government and benevolent organizations to listen to their call for help.
