Meet Our Entrepreneurs
To date, Saha Global has trained almost 700 entrepreneurs who have launched 247 water businesses. Most of our entrepreneurs are women, except for a couple of rockstar men, Soufoo and Alhassan! Brianan Kiernan, who was our Ghana Country Director and then our West Africa Regional Director from 2012-2014, did a wonderful job capturing portraits of these amazing ladies, and our Field Rep teams are contributing portraits as well! Check back as we continue to add more.
Samata was born in Wa in the Upper West Region. She later went with her father to live in Techiman. She was raised by her father in Techiman until she got married and moved to Gurumanchayili. Samatha has three children, one girl and two boys.
The water treatment business was implemented in Gurumanchayili in January of 2014 by Winter Field Reps, Danielle, MJ, Kallie & Brittany. “I remember how hardworking the Field Reps were and how much the kids in the community loved playing with them,” she said.
Samata mentioned that people used to complain about stomach cramps before, but that has minimized now that they have clean water to drink. “I am happy to working as the entrepreneur at the water treatment center. I am happy to be able to provide safe, clean drinking water for my community.”
In addition to running the water treatment center, Samata also picks shea nuts. She then makes into shea butter and sells it.
