Regina helped build an epicentre for her community in Ghana

Apr 24, 2020 | Inspiring Stories - Africa

Regina is divorced and lives with her two daughters, aged 14 and 21, outside Obenyemi, Ghana. Both her daughters are in education.

Regina is a farmer and grows maize and ocher to support her family. She has joined The Hunger Project’s microfinance programme and through it, she has taken out loans to expand her agriculture business.

“The epicentre’s programme means a lot to me, without them I would not have been able to take out a loan for my company. I also use the health clinic, which is important.”

Regina has been with us ever since The Hunger Project came to Obenyemi.

“I have practically built the epicentre, I raised stones with my bare hands. It was obvious to me to be involved in the business right from the start, because of all the new activities and services that came with the epicentre.”

“You develop with the epicentre. In the future, we will be able to take out larger loans.”
