These four bright ladies (left to right: Gladys Asare, Rita Mensah, Shelia Asamoah, and Augustina Mensah) showcase their fashionable clothing for sale at Kwame Nkrumah Circle Market. They've lined up on the sidewalk space, granting them the best expsoure to potential customers, but also exposing them to the threat of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly's taskforce that removes street vendors from streets and sidewalks as part of their recurring "decongestion exercises." With their colourful, carefully selected clothes they hope to target young professional women who want to be stylish and professional at work.
