Tak­ing care of busi­ness

The Africa Report - - COUNTRY FOCUS -

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.
