Ngan Gnuni Lam – Dobinofong Group's story
Abibata is a 45-year-old mother of four children living in Lamashegu, a community in the northern region of Ghana. Abibata is a member of a rice-processing group called "Ngan Gnuni Lam-Dobinofong." She is the person seated with her hand raised in the group photo. Abibata and her group have been in the rice-processing business for more than eight years now with a reputation for quality local rice. The group has requested a loan amount of 22,600 GHS. Abibata’s share of the loan is 800 GHS, which she would use to buy paddy rice from local farmers for processing to meet an increased demand of the home market. Abibata and her group consider meeting the demand a great opportunity to earn more income to pay back this loan and support their business and families. Abibata and Ngan Gnuni Lam-Dobinofong group are grateful to Kiva lenders for their support.
