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) and, internal rate of return (IRR) as well as payback period was used to measure the financial feasibility of mango chips processing. The results indicate that the total capital expenditure to establish a small-scale mango chip enterprise is Gh₵5, 638.60
