Our Micro-Credit Support Programme started since the year 2017. Over the years, we have supported low income earners, small scale businesses, startups, and entrepreneurs within Ghana’s informal sector who normally do not have access to financial support in the form of credit to improve their businesses.
Under the Micro-Credit Support Programme, we targeted small scale businesses in the agribusiness value chain, service, transport, ICT, technical and vocational skill development geared towards creating employment, improving livelihoods and reducing poverty in Ghana.
Aside our micro-credit support programme, we have also supported small businesses and startups develop business plans/ proposals that can help you raise funds or attract good credit to support implementation of their business ideas.
