Azumah, 80  Bowku Village, Ghana by Phil Borges

Azumah, 80  Bowku Village, Ghana

Azumah spoke with great pride about her daughter, who is the treasurer of a women’s savings and credit group in Bowku called “Tam-Ndi.”  Historically, women in Bowku have not had a voice in community decisions and rarely met as a group.  The women developed a savings and credit association and elected leaders.  After the group was established, their membership grew rapidly and word of their success spread.  The Bowku women’s group was then asked to help form women’s associations in neighboring villages.  Azumah said, “Everything has changed in the last few years.  Now women have a say in our village.”
