Action Through Enterprise (ATE)
BizATE – Business Development and Training, Lawra District, Ghana.
BizATE is a training programme which supports entrepreneurs and small business owners in a rural district of Ghana which endures high levels of poverty and where the majority of the population rely on subsistence farming to survive.
The project provides small business owners (SBOs) with the necessary skills to kick start and grow a thriving business as a way of addressing the need for sustainable income generation in this region. With increased profits and savings, SBOs can support both themselves and their dependents. ATE’s approach ensures high retention and success rates, with SBOs on average trebling their monthly profit and securing savings for the future. Funding for this programme also includes the training of local trainers and consultants to deliver the programme. ATE is the only NGO providing business training in this part of Ghana.
