Summary

Twenty-five women in our microfinance program have built thriving business with the help of our loans. Help them become leaders, expand their businesses, and create jobs by offering them larger loans.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Most Ghanaian women are unable to find employment and instead start their own businesses to support their families. These entrepreneurs live hand to mouth with little to no savings. Even with successful businesses, many of these women are restricted by the unstable economies of their villages. Lumana provides business education, small loans, and a savings program so they have financial protection they need when unexpected expenses from natural disasters and family illness threaten their safety.

How will this project solve this problem?

For those who truly excel both as leaders and as businesswomen, Lumana provides larger loans and leadership training courses. With this assistance these women can build businesses large enough to employ additional members of the village.

Potential Long Term Impact

By reaching our goal of raising $10,000 we will be able to give loans to 25 women who can create approximately 50 jobs, extending safety and opportunity to 75 families in rural Ghana and sustainably enriching the economy of their villages.
