The sad story of William in the fanteakwa south district in the eastern region is so touching that may be happening to others too but may be unknown is quitting wrong doing and investing in the right business but unfortunately loses everything.
Willie as he is affectionately called is a native of Akyem Nsutam in the fanteakwa district in the eastern region who was engaged in Galamsey and upon several thoughts and advise, quit Galamsey and went into cabbage cultivation and now a vegetable farmers.
Few months and first time of venturing into farming, Willie invested all his lifetime savings plus loan into cabbage cultivation, he looked so comfortable and happy because the cabbage was healthily growing.
In about two weeks to harvesting, a heavy downfall swept all his farmland and lost everything.
In a studio discussion with Willie on Radio 1, he disclosed that it wasn't easy and has not been easy for him realising that he wakes up in a day and lose all his lifetime earnings with nothing he can do about it.
According to him, he's been consoled by his family but seeks support from all and sundry to go back the the vegetable farming.
"I am not going back to Galamsey. I want to do vegetable farming but I'm stack now. So anyone who is willing to come to my aid is indeed welcome. Though I lost my farm, together with other farmers, none of us has received any support from anyone. Please we need help" - Willie sadly narrates.
He added that the district Agric officers, NADMO and Assembly member for the area have visited to advise, console and motivate them but they really need financial support to go back into farming.
