The Need is Great in Ghana

Ghana is located in western Africa and is rich in minerals and natural resources with gold, oil, and cocoa leading as its largest exports. Agriculture makes up 20% of the GDP and over 50% of the workforce are employed in it. Ghana has made great strides in working to reduce extreme poverty, but there is still a great need. 61% of Ghanaians still live under the overall poverty line of $5.50 per day. Mentors Ghana now operates branches in Accra, Abomosu, Tamale, Tolon, and Walewale. Tamale, Walewale, and Tolon located in the northern region is considered one of the poorest in the country. Many families live off of less than USD $100 a year in this area. Our team in Ghana is working very hard to meet the needs of their country. There are many clients ready to receive loans, they are just waiting for generous donors to help provide the loan capitol. Take a moment to watch and learn about the great work being done in Ghana.
