New agreement signed with GGEM

15.02.19

Today Aurora signed a new loan agreement with Grassroots Gender Empowerment Movement (GGEM) a Sierra Leonean Microfinance  Institution that we have been supporting since 2014.

This is the third loan agreement signed with GGEM and will last for four years. Over the past years Aurora has worked closely with GGEM monitoring its Microfinance programme and supporting its development. Aurora has been very pleased with the work of the GGEM and is therefore proud to yet again support them in their quest to support individual entrepreneurs, and small and medium scale enterprises.
