This paper narrates the success story of Hermann Chinery-Hesse, chief of Soft Tribe Ltd. located at Ghana, West Africa. Chinery-Hesse has made a small fortune writing software, working as a systems architect, and selling computer code to hundreds of businesses in his country. Through Soft, Chinery-Hesse has also been providing training programs for the country's growing population of full-time programmers. His dream remains to expand software in Ghana, to make more money and to show the world that despite the often depressing headlines about poverty and mayhem in Africa, there are opportunities for technical talent.
