Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLA) Success Story


The Tropical Legumes projects identified strategic partnerships as a way to reach women farmers. In northern Ghana, to address women’s limited access to finance, the initiatives worked with small-scale community financial institutions  called Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLAs) to extend loans to women farmers. VSLA members were also introduced to the improved legume varieties and trained in seed production. Some 80% invested their money in off-farm activities like seed and grain aggregation businesses and achieved good returns. This video tells the story of the success of the VSLAs in Ghana.
