SAT seeks to provide lending services to entrepreneurs in small and micro-enterprises in Ghana to improve their businesses and enhance income generation opportunities of the low-income people to alleviate poverty, improve their standard of living and, consequently, positively transform their lives.
Christian Community Microfinance Limited (CCML)
By providing credit facilities to micro entrepreneurs, farmers, small businesses, private schools and churches from as far back as 1979, Christian Community Microfinance Limited (CCML) (which at inception was called the Ecumenical Church Loan Fund) was the first Microfinance Institution in Ghana. As a pioneer company, CCML braved the economic volatility of the 1980s and 1990s and set an example that would be emulated for years to come. Since inception in 1977, their approach to helping develop a truly successful society has been three-pronged;
- Providing excellent financial services to facilitate financial success,
- Engaging in social programs to improve the societies our clients live in and
- Advancing spiritual success through “The Great Commission.”
