What does it mean to be an entrepreneur in Ghana? Someone working on their own, providing sufficient income to support themselves and their family for a sustainable future.
At least that is Point Hope's description. Maybe we train people to have a skill and then to be an entrepreneur (read Rose's Story), or maybe Point Hope provides the capital through a microloan or a grant to begin a small business which will allow a family to be self-sufficient and have the pride of accomplishment.
Either way, Point Hope regularly creates opportunities for people to help themselves (offering a hand-up, instead of a hand-out.)
