Tungteeya-Pishigu #2 Group's story

Amatu is a 34-year-old married woman living with her husband and four children in Pishugu #2, a community in Northern Ghana. Amatu is the person sitting and holding the shea nuts roster in the group picture. Their group is called Tungteeya-Pishigu #2 Women Association.

All the members are involved in the business of processing shea nuts into shea butter. They have been doing this business for the past three years. They process high premium shea butter, some of which is sold to aggregators and exported to the European and USA markets. Amatu sells the butter to many other customers in Ghana. The group is therefore requesting a loan of GHS 3,600 to help the group increase the processing from 30 bags of shea nuts to 55 bags of shea nuts yearly. Amatu hopes to increase her income to support her family and repay the loan.
