If she was alive, today would have been Esther Ocloo’s 98th birthday.

Esther Afua Ocloo launched her journey as an entrepreneur when she was a teenager and moved on to become one of the leading entrepreneurs in Ghana.

She co-founded Women’s World Banking, which is a micro-lending organisation.

“You cannot go and be begging to your husband for every little thing, but at the moment, that’s what the majority of our women do,” she said in a speech in 1990.

She died in 2002 after a battle with pneumonia. At her state burial, ex-Ghanaian president John Agyekum Kufuor said that Esther “was a creator and we need many people of her calibre to build our nation.”
