A loan of $4,300 helped a member to buy and process five bags of shea nuts into shea butter.


Kpanmanga Bimbilla - Gumbihini Group's story

Awabu is a 46-year-old active woman from Bimbilla in the Northern part of Ghana. She is married and has seven children. She is the person squatting with both hands placed on the basin of shea nuts in their group picture.

Awabu is a member of this shea butter processing group which has been doing business over the last two years. Their group is called ‘Kpanmanga Bimbilla - Gumbihini’ Women Association. She makes good profits from the business since she has been trained by Grameen Ghana on improving ways of processing high quality shea butter and selling to customers around Ghana.

Awabu and the group have asked for a loan of GHS 14,750. Her share of the loan will help her to buy and process five bags of shea nuts into shea butter. By so doing, she will earn more income and hence repay this loan and support her children’s educational and health needs.
