Ghana - BESSFA Rural Bank Ltd
BESSFA provides agricultural and small trading loans to people living and working in the very remote area of Garu, in Upper East Ghana. This region is very dry and has largely been stripped of its natural resources, resulting in the desertification of much of the land. Deki works with BESSFA to provide loans to farmers whose work has been badly affected by environmental destruction. Even a loan as small as £30 can life changing for a farmer in this area as it can provide seeds and basic irrigation tools.
