|Abstract: ||Mango fruits contribute substantially to the socio-economic wellbeing of
fruit value-chain actors in sub-Sahara Africa, but high incidences of post-harvest
losses are posing serious threats to the survival and sustainability of the sub-sector.
Therefore, this study aimed to provide evidence-based financial analysis of mango
chip processing whose capital structure is within the capacity of small-scale processors
in Ghana. The study uses a case study approach on a small-scale mango
chip facility established at Lower Manya-Krobo district of Ghana. Cost-benefit analysis
of investment worth such as net present value (NPV), benefit–cost ratio (BCR)

capital expenditure to establish a small-scale mango chip enterprise is Gh₵5, 638.60|
