The AFG story

AFG was founded by Yasmin Kumi, a German-Ghanaian entrepreneur, in 2016 to bridge the talent gap for homegrown African companies. Starting from Ghana, the business rapidly grew to serve a large base of clients and candidates looking to advance the private sector of the continent with the objective to support the creation of at least 250,000 jobs in Africa. People working at AFG operate based on 6 key principles:
Everyone is a leader: Own your work and development
Drive your client: Support the realization of their mission
Impact first: Make AFG great, make the continent great
never give up
We never give up: Practice makes perfect
Promote excellence: Mediocrity is not an option
Courageous problem-solving Think ahead, give it a shot
