A loan of $3,325 helped a member to buy 140 bags of shea nuts for processing into premium shea butter.


Kpangmanga-Nyong Nayili Group's story

Shawana is married and is 40 years old with five children. She is a member of a shea nut processing association from Nyong-Nayili in the Northern Region of Ghana. The group is called Kpangmanga-Nyong Nayili Women's Association. Shawana has been doing this business with her 21 colleagues in the group for the past 4 years.

A new loan of 8,400 cedis will help Shawana and her colleagues to buy and store 140 bags of shea nuts for processing into shea butter. There are available off-taker organizations and individuals who buy the shea butter Shawana processes. She hopes to expand this business for the first time since she started it and thereby increase her income. With increased income, she will be able to repay the loan and also help her children to have better education and food to eat.

Shawana is the person holding the shea nut roaster in the group picture.
