With Just Selling Asaana, She Has Been Able To See Her Son's Through University.

In countries where the minimal daily wage is less than $2, single parenting is challenging. When a happy marriage ends, children usually stay with their mothers. Mothers, especially in their latter years, should be given special attention because they have gone through so much in raising their children. Without a question, Mother's Day is more extensively observed than Father's Day.

Patience Budu comes from Ghana's Eastern region, Akuapem to be specific. Patience, a single mother, has been able to support her two children from primary school through university by working menial jobs such as selling Asaana, a traditional Ghanaian drink made from corn.

Patience Budu claimed to have three children, two boys and a girl. "I have three children that are 22 years old, 21 years old, and 8 years old. They have different fathers because my first husband died, and I decided not to get pregnant again. However, I was unable to do so, and the second child was born.”

Patience addressed the topic of marriage, revealing that she is currently married but that she and her husband are now living separately. She went on to say that her job is now her husband because it pays her children's school tuition.
