Gub'danda - Tampion’ Group
Memunatu is a member of a shea nuts farmers and shea butter processing group, who have been doing this business over the last fifteen years. Their group is called “Gub'danda – Tampion” Women’s Association. She makes good profits from the business, since she and every member of her group has been trained by Grameen Ghana on how to process high-quality premium shea butter for both international and local markets.
Memunatu and the group have asked for a loan of GHS 3,200 to enable them to pay the cost of labour to pick 40 bags of shea nuts for processing. By so doing, Memunatu would increase production and hence increase income, repay the loan and support her children’s educational and food needs.
