Amina is from a remote community in Ghana, where hunger and poverty was a daily reality, and people lived hand-to-mouth, sometimes going without meals. After being trained by The Hunger Project, Amina developed a vision for her community where women are respected leaders and have access to microfinance loans.
To achieve her dream, she stepped up to lead her local microfinance committee and educate women about leveraging small loans to create and expand their small businesses so they can financially support themselves and their families. Amina says, “I know that if I take a microfinance loan, I will work to be able to pay it back, and as a result I can take charge of my own affairs. I have no fears! I have confidence in our leadership.”
