One Hen This large format picture book tells the satisfying story of how Kojo, a young Ghanaian boy, learns a valuable lesson about economics and the ability to bring about change from small beginnings. With the loan of a few coins he buys a hen and is soon able to sell surplus eggs to buy more hens, until he has built up a flourishing enterprise and can afford to attend school, after which he works to improve the living standard of his community as well as his family. An afterword gives a case-history of a real-life Kojo who offers other people the chance to escape poverty with the type of micro loan that had helped transform his own life.
