It has emerged that Janet Kokor, a 74-year-old farmer in Ghana, walks on her feet with a stick four hours every day from her farm to her house.
The feature on the aged lady was sighted by Briefly.co.za on The Ghanaian Farmer, a TV show set around Ghana’s booming Agric sector to highlight Ghanaian farmers and made in Ghana food.
It is indicated that Janet Kokor who lives at Pabi, a town near Asamankese, always has to manage and cross a waterfall carefully not to fall inside due to the lack of a footbridge.

Yet, her numerous challenges have not deterred her from using the little strength she has at her old age to cultivate crops for her own livelihood and to feed other mouths.
On February 14, 2021, the host of the show, Enyonam Manye, along with some of her crew surprised the 74-year-old farmer with goodies as a way of showing her love for her efforts.
The package given to the hardworking Janet Kokor included food items as well as farming tools to assist her to go about the farming duties more easily.
