Talk about us. Faustina Sakyi from Ghana.


Talk about us.Faustina Sakyi, The Ghanaian Cassava farmer who turned her world around. Faustina Sakyi, a successful cassava farmer in #Ghana, was born into a poor family that had to live off the land by farming cassava tubers which were primarily used as food.Now in her 40s, she has built an incredible business opportunity from #cassava which she processes into #gari – a very popular staple in West Africa. In her drive to make a different and brighter future for her kids, this mother of three set out to organize fellow women in her community who were unemployed and needed a sustainable source of income. With over 30 women recruited on her team and a bank loan of 3,400 Ghana Cedis ($1,700), Faustina started her rural cassava processing business.
