Entrepreneurship Lectures

Esther Ocloo

She was a dynamic Ghanaian entrepreneur who as co-founder, (1979) and head of ‘womens’ world banking’, pioneered the practice of micro lending, providing tiny loans to small home-based businesses, usually those run by women in less-developed countries. She was the first president of the Ghana industries association (GIA). During the Beijing women’s conference, the chairperson, Mrs. Hillary Clinton was so fascinated by Mrs. Ocloo’s entrepreneurial achievements that she was invited to join the high table.
