Awah Ntseh – Entrepreneur.
Awah loves nature and has made it his core mission to harness the gifts of nature to solve challenges all around us.
His first venture into entrepreneurship was tomato farming in 2015. When a colony of snails invaded his crops, a passerby remarked how she had used snail mucine (slime) to heal a skin problem and that was his light- bulb moment.
Awah researched and discovered the benefits of mucine. He started a snail farm, extracted the snail mucine and used it for cosmetic products. He is the founder of Farmer Forte; an agribusiness which also deals in a range of other beauty products as well. He was shortlisted for the 2018 Anzisha Prize. Be inspired!
