GCB Bank to transform cashew sector

The Deputy Managing Director (DMD) of Operations at GCB Bank PLC, Emmanuel Odartey Lamptey, has outlined the bank’s strategic vision aimed at transforming Ghana’s cashew sector through innovative financial solutions and technology.

He said the initiative underscored the bank’s commitment to fortify one of the nation’s pivotal agricultural industries, emphasising a multi-stakeholder engagement approach designed to reduce financing risks and attract substantial banking investment into the sector.

Speaking on behalf of the Managing Director of GCB Bank, Kofi Adomakoh, at the just-ended 3i Africa Summit, Mr Lamptey articulated the bank’s strategic focus on the cashew sector.

He indicated that GCB Bank’s ambition was to generate robust multi-stakeholder engagements, fostering a technology-driven framework to mitigate financing risks across the cashew value chain.

“This initiative is expected to not only attract more bank financing but also to catalyse sustainable growth within the sector,” he stated at a roundtable discussion on de-risking important sectors of Ghana’s economy for growth.

The infusion of technology, Mr Lamptey stated, presented a transformative opportunity for the cashew industry. “From precision agriculture powered by data analytics to smart irrigation systems, blockchain-enabled supply chain management, and market intelligence platforms, technology offers a suite of solutions that can revolutionise operations in the sector”.

“These advancements are poised to enhance productivity, unlock efficiencies and significantly mitigate risks from farm to market,” he pointed out.
