Aunty Alfie began her career as a seamstress like many other Ghanaian women. She is now the owner of Alfie Designs. In the early days she began to train others up in the industry but she could not afford to keep them on once they were fully able in all the techniques. Slowly Alfie has brought in more clients and as the volumes increased, so did her ability to hire. Alfie and her daughter now run a factory with over 50 employees and have expanded further with the support of ethical apparel Africa who ensure quality control, new mass production techniques and that ethical working conditions are implemented to international standards. The Social Mercenary are very proud of the work performed by the factory and the workers, who put their heart and soul into the products.
