Tiger Nuts Production, Processing And Export, Physically Challenged Farmer At Kwatire Takes Lead

During his formative years, and coming from a poor background, his parents did not find it useful to educate a physically challenged son.

But, that did not discourage Kofi Vinyo from aspiring higher in life.

Determined to achieve his dreams of becoming an agro-processor in future, Vinyo believed ‘disability is not inability’, defied all odds and managed to acquire an Advanced Level Certificate in Accountancy.

It was then that he realised the prospects in agriculture, and strong in mind, Vinyo began to engage in commercial farm work in 2013.

Currently, he is the Managing Director of the Kofi Vinyo Company Limited, an agro-processing company at Kwatire, a farming community in the Sunyani West Municipality of the Bono Region.

By dint of hard work, the company has 50 acres of coconut, six million snails, 200 acres of cashew and over 100 acres of plantain and cocoyam, 20-acre chili pepper, and 10-acre ginger farm.
