Resource-rich Ghana ranks among the United States' top trading partners in sub-Saharan Africa, and boasts one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Yet more than half of its population still struggles to survive on subsistence farming.
TechnoServe is addressing these challenges by helping smallholder farmers improve the quality and quantity of their crops, linking them to more lucrative markets and training them in business skills. TechnoServe also helps businesses in key industries become more efficient and competitive, in turn increasing local employment and contributing to diversified economic growth. Through a national business plan competition, we mentor aspiring entrepreneurs across a range of sectors, helping them develop and finance their business ideas.
