Nana Adjoa Sifa Amponsah is a successful social entrepreneur and founder of Guzakuza, a Ghanaian organisation that supports women ‘agripreneurs’. She’s adamant that agriculture is not only about tilling the soil, but about all the stages of the process, from the farm to the table and includes processing, packaging, branding, marketing, transportation and distribution. Nana helps young women create businesses in rural areas that boost agriculture productivity and generate profits.
