Ghana - Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Project (English)

The Ghana Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Project aims to enhance the competitive and employment levels of Ghanaian Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). This will be achieved by: (1) building an integrated market access and trade facilitation infrastructure; (2) proactively supporting entrepreneurship development; (3) developing and strengthening, on a sustainable basis, the capacity of local intermediaries to deliver financial and non-financial services to MSMEs, and MSMEs to make productive use of these services; (4) reducing selected business constraints, including technical barriers to trade, faced by MSMEs; (5) providing an enabling environment (access to finance, trade promotion, and trade facilitation infrastructure) to boost increased investments in the MSME sector; and (6) enhancing the facilitation, project development, and implementation roles of the Government.
