Meet Musah: a Farmer from Ghana

Meet Musah

“I never went to school. When I was a child, I never had the opportunity to, but some of my friends did, and I see the improvements in their lives. I think it is important to educate my children, so they can learn skills and have more choices for their futures.”

Musah is a maize and groundnut farmer in a rural community near Tamale, in northern Ghana. Prior to 2017, Musah (and most of her neighbors) had never opened a bank account. Season after season, she had struggled to save enough capital to purchase seed and fertilizer for her two-acre farm. Fortunately, Opportunity began conducting trainings in her community and helped Musah and her neighbors form a group to receive agricultural loans. For the first time, she was able to purchase enough seed and fertilizer, which helped increase her yields at harvest. Today, Musah has a bank account in her name where she can securely save her income—and feels empowered to decide how to spend it. Her dream is to expand the acreage of her farm and continue earning enough to help all five of her children finish their education. 

Thank you for your support and generosity. Our work would not be possible without you!
