Development Bank Ghana partnered with Access Bank Ghana PLC to undertake financial literacy capacity building workshop with the University of Cape Coast D-Hub (an initiative under the Office of the Vice Chancellor, seeks to develop change agents in its community, stimulate the establishment and growth of start-up firms and other businesses).
The event hosted over 176 members of the Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry-Cape Coast Chapter and student entrepreneurs of the university.
The SMEs were taken through various financial literacy programs including the SME Financial Empowerment (SFE) which is an educational program for MSME businesses to build foundational digital financial literacy and understanding of essential financial services to thrive in the digital economy. There was also a session for environmental and social governance fundamentals for MSMEs to ensure sustainability.
DBG views partnerships as critical to the way it executes its work to develop and strengthen the soft and hard skills of its SME members to stay competitive, build resilience and grow their businesses sustainably.
