Young Cameroonian entrepreneur David Morfaw, was awarded a Queen’s Young Leaders Award from Her Majesty The Queen in recognition of the lead he is taking in Cameroon, to transform the lives of others and make a lasting difference in his community.
As a child, David watched his parents struggle to buy food and pay his school fees. Despite having health problems and being dyslexic, David started his first micro-business aged eight selling water. In 2011 he created Poult-Vault, a social enterprise which tackles the problems of malnutrition and hunger by supplying chickens as interest-free loans to women and young people. The owners can then sell their produce to pay for the chickens. David also created a barter system so farmers can pay for their children’s education using crops.
