Storage for Ghanaian women's palm oil surplus

by African Women's Development Fund

Summary

Storage space for a Ghanaian women's palm oil processing group would prevent their surplus from going rancid, enabling them to obtain premium prices rather than being forced to sell it off quickly.

Challenge

In western Ghana where palm fruit is abundant, the business of processing palm oil is passed down from family to family. For the women of these villages, many of whom are illiterate single mothers, inheriting this business provides them with their sole source of income. Over 40 women have combined equipment and labor to form the Dzinpa Adom palm oil processing group. While the group is profitable, the income generated is minimal as the oil goes rancid due to the lack of a storage space

Solution

Women will become competitive in the market and will earn a sufficient living.

Long-Term Impact

Build a warehouse to store surplus oil for lean times, sell to the highest bidder, and house an office for bookkeeping and administrative activities.
