Suglo Mbori Buni-Tampion Group's story

Afishetu belongs to Suglo Mbori Buni-Tampion Women Assosiation who, for the past two years, have been in the business of processing Shea nuts into Shea butter.

She is a 45-year-old active working woman in her community. Afishetu is married and has 2 children. Her family lives in Tampion, a village in the northern part of Ghana.

Initially, due to the lack of adequate funds, Afishetu’s dream to increase production and run a shea butter extraction company was bleak. However, because of Kiva and Grameen Ghana, the dream is possible. She requests 9,300.00 GHS to help her fulfill this dream. She will buy 80 bags of Shea nuts, hire labor, and pay for fuel to carry out the Shea butter extraction process. Afishetu sells the butter to companies for export.

She will be able to earn more income, support her children’s education, look after their health, provide food and repay this loan.
