As the year draws to a close, the Board of URBANET is visiting our communities to engage beneficiaries of our interventions. The visits also afford them the opportunity to engage other key stakeholders including the District Assemblies and their decentralized departments. It is expected that members will gather relevant information to support oversight role.
The Hub shall serve as a ‘one-stop shop’ for women to access gender-responsive Business Development Services (BDS) to start and grow small enterprises, would be operated out of existing district-level Business Advisory Centers (BACs) operated by the Ghana Enterprises Agency (GEA). The Rural Solar Hub established in Voggu in the Kumbungu District in Northern Region Ghana will serve women in both Tolon and the Kumbungu district by providing them information relevant to their businesses.
The Hub will support businesswomen in five main service areas; Entrepreneurship and Business Management, Green Value Chain Development, Green Business, Buyers, Marketing and Outreach, and Financial Inclusion. It is the intention of the Project to facilitate the feminization of services under these identified areas as well as improving linkages between service providers and project beneficiaries.
