#FemalInstagram 1eEmpowerment: A few Hunger Project staff members from Sweden and the U.S. are currently in #Ghana and took this photo of Elizabeth Obubuafo with tomatoes grown on her farm in Mahem, a community at Matsekope epicenter. Through microcredit loans from The Hunger Project, she was able to grow her farming business to 50 acres of land from 10. Elizabeth now hires people to work her land and also has other businesses in fish, clothes and poultry. She is now able to send her children to school and provide a better life for them. Her husband supports her in these endeavors. In an area where women have generally been marginalized and subordinate to men, Elizabeth is a shining example of an empowered women. #women #empowerment #ghana #tomatoes #farming #africa

 

The firInstagram 2st step in rethinking the solution to world hunger is starting with women! When #women have equal access to #education and go on to participate fully in #business and economic #decisionmaking, they are a key driving force against hunger and poverty. #RethinkWorldHunger #RethinkTheSolution #EndHunger #EndPoverty #startwithwomen #womensempowerment

Instagram 3Anima Bishuro has used #loans from the Hunger Project to improve her life. With her first loan, Amina took out 600 birr and bought a female sheep. When the sheep gave birth she sold the baby and repaid the loan. With her second loan, Amina took out 1000 birr, in addition to what she had saved from the first loan and the sheep, and bought a cow.The cow had calves and produced milk and butter which Amina sold. With her last loan, Amina took out 1500 birr so she could send her daughter to Saudi Arabia for a good job. With the money Amina has made through her sheep, cow, and the #success of her daughter, Amina has been able to redo her house. #womancrushwednesday #wcw #womensempowerment #business #saving #endhunger #endpoverty #Ethiopia
