Established in 2015, Mentors International serves some of the most poverty-stricken communities in Ghana. Though rich in minerals and natural resources such as gold, oil, and cocoa, 61% of the country still lives below the poverty line of $5.50 per day. Ghana has made great strides in working to reduce extreme poverty, but there are still many families living on less than $100 a year. There is also limited access to financial services such as microloans, savings accounts, and insurance plans.
Our mentees and small-loan recipients represent a broad range of industries, from transportation services to sewing.
Through mentorship, training, and financial solutions, we’re able to help these entrepreneurs start, expand, and diversify their businesses. Ultimately, each mentee will be able to transform generational poverty into sustainable Self-Reliance.
