Excellent approach, mate, but I am confused why USD $ and not GHC since these projects are in Ghana or has Ghana changed its currency or policies? I wonder how you top-notch business guys can help your government stabilise the cedi if you push the USD ahead of the cedi by selling in USD.
Ampofo Derek commented:
Worth sharing. One step at a time, if we all can purchase made in Ghana, we will steadily bring our country to where it needs to be.
Charles Vernon remarked:
Brilliant. In the 1970s thru the 1990s, Ghana had a strong furniture manufacturing performance, mostly for export, but it all stopped. Great to see Ghana-made wooden products being used in Ghana now.

I produce wood polish both in wax and liquid. I am available to send samples and literature. It's for cleaning wardrobes, cabinets and cooking boards.
Cheapest Homes in Ghana Made From Unique Materials Like Raffia Palm and Earth
In an earlier story, YEN.com.gh wrote about the cheapest homes in Ghana made from recyclable materials. Ghana's real estate market is quite costly, yet several cheap homes are constructed of unusual materials on the market. As an alternative to traditional concrete blocks, people are now choosing to construct with recyclable resources, including shipping containers, raffia palms, and dirt. Building homes out of recyclable materials is progressively changing Ghana's infrastructure.
