Tonto Credit & Social Services is a microcredit project based in Kyirapatre (Lake Road), Kumasi (Ghana) run by Afroeuro Foundation, Ghana. Tonto Credit & Social Services was started in 2020 with few contributors and now has 75 beneficiaries in the region. The credit services are aimed at reaching the local traders in the region in order to meet their need for small investment credits & loans for which they cannot meet their requirements of the banks for collateral security.
For a lot of traders and farmers in the region, especially women, there is difficulty to expand their activities due to the nature of the community that is focused on subsistence agriculture and petty trade to their families. At the end of the month, most of them, mostly farmers have very little money left over to take care of their children’s education, healthcare and even food. What this project does is work with them to enhance their economic activity in the region.
The credit facility is financed by investments from the Diaspora community in the Netherlands and savings from the projects in Ghana. In addition, institutional investors and non-Ghanaian investors are also invited to participate.
