Arishetu is an active woman, 45 years old, from Bagurugu in the Northern part of Ghana. Arishetu is married and has eight children. (She is the fourth person from the left, squatting in their group picture.) Arishetu is a member of shea nut pickers and shea butter processing group who have been in business for the last three years. Their group is called ‘Suglo Nbori Buni-Bagurugu’ Women Association. She makes good profits from the business. All of the members of her group have been trained by Grameen Ghana on how to process high quality premium shea butter which Planet Finance (Shea butter marketing company) buys and exports.

Arishetu and the group have asked for a loan of 10,000 GHS to enable them pay the cost of 19 labourers to pick 73 bags of shea nuts, the cost of two roster machines and the cost of fuel for the roasting and extraction of shea butter. By so doing, she would increase productivity and be able to repay the loan and support her children’s educational and food needs.
