Find out more about how the Scholars Entrepreneurship Fund is driving up financial independence, entrepreneurial leadership, business growth and social capital among young women.
In addition to financial investment, CAMFED Ghana has devised a tailored mentorship program as part of our partnership with Mastercard Foundation and its Young Africa Works strategy, supporting female entrepreneurs to thrive. Together with the Ghana Enterprises Agency (formerly National Board for Small Scale Industries) we have established District Business Committees to provide advice and support to young women in business.
The voluntary, five-person committees, which were formed in 2020, have visited entrepreneurs to offer advice and assistance, helped with access to affordable loans and grants, and assisted with business registration processes. At their recommendation, more than 6,000 entrepreneurs have been supported with start-up kits, specialist equipment and training.
