Who is Dr. Kwabena Darko?
Dr. Kwabena Darko inspired the story of Kojo in the book One Hen: How One Small Loan Made a Big Difference.
At a young age, Dr. Darko received a gift of some baby chicks and started a backyard poultry farm, which he grew to become the largest in West Africa. He went on to run for the Presidency of Ghana, serve on the board of Ghana’s Central Bank, and become an ordained church minister and chairman of a global microfinance agency called Opportunity International.
His story has inspired thousands of kids around the world to become social entrepreneurs, raising money to help others.
I often tell people that when I was young and struggling, somebody gave me a chance.
All I want to do now is to be part of something that gives young people the same break I received.”
~ Dr. Darko
