I am Gifty Abena Quarcoo born to Kwesi Armah Quarcoo and Victoria Ehiah in Ajumako Bisease located in the central region of Ghana and I am the 4th of 6 children.
In 2020 I earned a BA degree in Management Studies from the University of Cape Coast.
Being a Civil Servant by profession with about 4years of experience I am motivated daily to read extensively, network and take life as it comes.
I am a firm believer in the father, Son and Holy Spirit and this has been my Anchor.
They say a child’s growing environment affects them for life and I must say this is true. Growing up in Bisease, Dansoman, Bubuashie, Airport Residential, and Kanda Estates respectively has truly challenged my general outlook on life.
There was something unique about the culture of these residents that I must confess shapes you and sets the tone for how to live.
Being the daughter of a trader, selling is a natural thing for me.
BODYSHOP_GH started in the year 2016 focusing solely on Bodyshop products from the UK.
Although It was quite challenging considering its many vendors I began scouting for other ventures until late 2019 when my sister pushed me into lingeries. She scheduled a lingerie shoot for her husband and asked that I get her the costumes which I gladly did. I directed the shoot and the outcome resulted in many of her friends wanting the same.
I quickly established contact with both local and foreign suppliers. So basically Body Shop started in my home, migrated to social media, Instagram especially, then to my car boot for about a year and finally to my shop. We import our goods from UK, USA, China and across the continent.
The challenge however, has been my background. Coming from a Christian home and Ghana in particular, “sex” is a taboo word literally. Selling products that are seen as sex enhancers worsens the situation but there are always two sides to a coin. Although a school of thought see the nature of my business to be worldly and devilish, there’s the other side that realizes that times have changed. Out with the old, in with the new. I’m so glad I persevered regardless in this field because the feedback from married women especially is heartwarming. I’m happy to be the one enhancing beauty from beneath.
I look forward to being the ultimate choice for lingeries and bedroom goodies in Ghana and globally.
Nothing good comes easy, Life is a struggle and you live once. I always say there is nothing like too much money.
The lingerie business is great and big enough for everyone.
Fear is allowed when u consider business but you must believe in your calling and purpose. Learn as you go along, just don’t stop. Quitting is too easy. Persevere
