Launching the project on Thursday March 16,2023 at Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, Mrs Kosi Yankey – Ayeh said the project will adopt a multi-sectoral approach to ensure all inclusive and enabling environment for all particularly women entrepreneurs to be able to soar high in their area of work.

Addressing the media at the sidelines of the event, Mrs Kosi Yankey-Aye said the first six months of the project will be piloted at Kumasi and Accra for the initial stage and later extend to the rest of the country.
The six month pilot is in partnership with the Alliance for Integrity and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (GIZ), Germany to strengthen the compliance capacities of SMEs.
