For about 20 years Richard has been working at the market. A lot changed at Kantamanto Market when a big fire burned down the whole place. This happened 10 years ago and everyone lost everything. Since then he started buying clothing one piece at a time focusing on a particular style. There are many different grades of clothing items but 1st grade is the best. Richard buys a 1st grade t-shirt for 100 Cedi and can re-sell it for 120 Cedi. 

Usually the 1st grade clothing Richard buys comes from the UK, Canada or China. This kind of business  requires that the stall owner can make savings, in order to buy expensive, good clothing.
