For instance, he says he could make GH₵20,000 every four days just from harvesting an acre of tomato farm.

"As we speak now, one box of tomatoes, the 72kg cartons that the women sell in the markets, costs GH₵5,000. If I plant an acre of tomatoes, I will harvest it every four days. and I will be getting four or five of those boxes from my second or third day of harvest. So if I harvest four boxes every four days, I would make GH₵20,000,, and I would be getting that every four days," he explained.
