Traveling by motorbike on rural Ghana’s dirt roads, Racheal Dekyi is an anomaly.
Young and university-educated, Racheal is the unlikely face of the future of farming in a country where the average farmer is 55 and poorly educated.
Racheal works with 200 smallholder farmers in Grameen Foundation’s AgroTech project. She uses its digital app suite to analyze and understand each farm’s history and needs. She teaches the farmers new practices, trains them in record keeping, and helps them obtain loans to purchase inputs.
