About Sharon

Sharon, a 20-year-old entrepreneur from Ghana, is currently an undergraduate LLB student at Central University. In five years, she hopes to be a qualified lawyer, with a thriving clothing store with branded items.

Transition into Entrepreneurship

Sharon noticed that young women in her college community struggled to find well-made high fashion clothing. Many online shops selling clothes had outrageous prices, poor delivery, false advertisements, and poor customer service. So, she established Pengstreet to fill these gaps in the market. Sharon takes on a very hands-on approach in the business by carefully hand-picking clothing items like swimwear, skirts, blouses, jeans, dresses etc. ensuring that the business provides the best quality for its customers.

Business Information

Peng Street is a fashion house selling trendy clothes that meet the fashion needs of university students. The venture deals with assorted items such as swimwear, skirts, blouses, jeans, dresses, hats, scarves, and other items which are posted on online platforms to attract customers.
