Africa Skills Hub and Whitehall Advisors Limited have entered into agreement to mutually support women entrepreneurs particularly women-owned businesses from the Women’s Entrepreneurship and Livelihoods Initiative (WELI) incubator and cooperatives.
This partnership came together after a series of investor network opportunities organized and facilitated by the Africa Skills Hub for Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW) entrepreneurs in Ghana (Tamale, Ve -Agbome), and Senegal (region of Thies). Fifty adolescent girls and young women comprising 30 Ghanaian beneficiaries and 20 Senegalese beneficiaries under WELI are to benefit from the partnership investments and financial support.
Africa Skills Hub Executive Director Daniel Amoako Antwi said this investment will go a long way to create a new generation of women entrepreneurs who are passionate about driving the continent’s socio-economic fortunes. In both countries, women are the front-runners in the micro, small, medium enterprise space hence this investment brings a lot of leverage in terms of access to market opportunities, trade, and investments.
Commenting on the partnership, the Managing Partner of Whitehall Advisors, Daniel Kelvin Mensah, said investing in women-led micro-enterprises bring a multiplier force for development. And there’s massive evidence to prove that the world over. As to why women entrepreneurs don’t get enough support, it still puzzling. We will seek to bridge that gap.
With Africa Skills Hub’s vision of being the leading center of the creation of opportunities for Africa’s Sustainable Development, with an established record of training Young Business Startups & MSMEs, together with Whitehall Advisors’ Supply Chain financing Scheme, we believe this collaboration will advance and support the interests and activities of each organization to have a greater impact and provide assistance to women-led micro, small and medium enterprises to fully realize their business goals.
