Tisongmi Taba-Nyong Nayili Group's story

Damu is an active woman, 48 years old, from Nyong-Nayili in the northern part of Ghana. She is married and has six children. She is the second person from the left among those placing their hand on the shea nuts in the group picture.

Damu is a member of a shea butter processing group who have been in the business for the last 4 years. Their group is called Tisongmi Taba-Nyong Nayili Women's Association. Damu makes good profits from the business since she and every member of her group have been trained by Grameen Ghana on how to process high quality premium shea butter for both international and local markets.

Damu and the group have asked for a loan of 6,900 cedis to enable them to buy 115 bags of shea nuts for processing. By so doing, Damu will increase production and, hence, profit more, repay the loan, and support her children’s educational and food needs.
