Donors Expand Private Sector Scheme in Ghana

The U.S. Agency for International Development and Danish International Development Agency are contributing a total of $12 million for the second phase of a private sector development project in Ghana.

The Business Sector Advocacy Challenge Fund offers grants to small and medium businesses, and helps business service providers prepare and implement advocacy actions. The fund’s second phase runs for five years. 

The first phase ended last year and provided 362 grants to business groups across Ghana that support advocacy activities in improving the country’s business environment, according to Public Agenda, which is sponsored by the Ghanaian non-governmental organization Integrated Social Development Center.
