STEGENOR LAUNCHES SANITATION CAMPAIGN; SAY NO TO OPEN DEFECATION
Stegenor Microfinance Limited is a non-bank financial institution registered in Ghana and duly licensed to undertake the business of providing microfinance products and services to the people of Ghana. Over the past six years the company has been transformed through sound leadership and best practices from partners locally and internationally.
We have served various trades and supported start-ups through our flexible loans for individuals, women groups in trade, farmers, local kernel/oil producers, fish mongers, market operators etc.
Through a 10 year partnership under a memorandum of understanding signed with The Rotary Foundation, Stegenor Microfinance Ltd is providing microflush toilets, boreholes and microcredit loans to many households and communities in the Ashanti and Brong Ahafo regions of Ghana. In communities such as Kortwia, Bekwai, Edwinase, Obuasi, Fomena, in the Ashanti region, microflush toilets and boreholes have drilled for many individuals and communities.
As part of our social goals and that of The Rotary Foundation, we aim to provide every household with a hygienic toilet system which is scentless, environmentally friendly and affordable to build. This biofil system uses only a cup of water per flush activity. It saves water, it’s affordable and convenient to install.
A new sanitation drive known as S-SWAP has been introduced into the country. The objective is to SAY NO TO OPEN DEFECATION by the installation of micro-flush biofill toilet systems in our communities and households.
Nana Effah Mensah, local grant administrator for Rotary added that the future is all about empowering the local communities to lead their own projects.
Water and sanitation improvements are the best definitions for social empowerment in Africa. We must own our water and sanitation responsibilities.
