Lumana

Our vision is to create thriving communities across Africa. We do that first by creating a baseline of financial security through our microfinance and Business Management Education program. In the process we encourage community building, entrepreneurship, and leadership development throughout the villages. Through our on-the-ground partnerships, efforts, and surveys, we can recognize the essential programs that will increase the amount of healthy communities across rural Africa.

Programs

Lumana offers microfinance plus and community investment programs that try to address the problem of poverty at a village level. By implementing this thoughtful approach we work to empower individuals, improve markets and support job creation in rural communities in Ghana. Lumana's main programs are: 1. Microfinance and business education - Offering individuals the chance to learn better ways to run their businesses as well as accessing credit needed to grow 2. Savings Only- Creating opportunities for individuals to save their money in a way that is safe, tied to long term goals and offers a positive return. 3. SME investment- Lumana invests funds in rural businesses that effect the lives of our microfinance borrowers. These businesses are generally of a much larger size and have impacts that effect entire villages.
