Taking care of business
The Africa Report profiles businesswomen, a banker, a minister and a budding entrepreneur who play key roles in growth sectors of the Ghanaian economy
Attah co-founded Farmerline, a start-up focused on farming and technology, with Emmanuel Owusu Addai in 2013. It has been growing ever since. Farmerline helps farmers to boost yields with improved information, finance and access to inputs. It also collects data and improves communication between growers and other players in the agricultural sector. Farmerline has raised about $1m, now employs about 30 people and has operations in 10 African countries. Attah had created a few other start-ups before Farmerline but none had met with this much success.
