Business Support Report



The Presidential Business Support programme within the last three years has conducted two successful windows of business support with training opportunities for 19,000 businesses or entrepreneurs in Ghana and total of 4,350 funding beneficiaries.

The impact of the presidential business support nation-wide has been huge in terms of Sustainable jobs that are being created and the contribution to the GDP Growth. Despite these successes, we believe that greater impact can also be achieve by going down to the grassroots in the rural and peri urban communities that have not really benefitted from the first two windows of the programmes. After a careful review of the two windows, Management of NEIP are of the view that window 3 be conducted in line with our objective of the COMMUNITY BUSINESS INITIATIVE The Community Business Initiative programme is in line with the key mandate of the Ministry of Business Development to develop and implement policies and programmes to improve the entrepreneurial capacity of Ghanaians particularly the youth in rural communities in order to create jobs and wealth.


The window 3 will focus on extending the Presidential Business support programme in terms of training and funding support 260 districts in Ghana comprising of all districts in 16 regions of Ghana 

This will afford the Ministry and NEIP the opportunity not only to train and support businesses in all the districts but to be able to explain our programmes, policies and achievement of government (MOBD/NEIP) within the last three(3) years.


The Presidential Business Support through the Community Business Initiative will target to train 26,000 Start-ups, Micro, small and medium scale enterprises within the 260 MMDA’s with an average of 100 businesses to be trained per MMDA and an average of 10-20 businesses selected for funding per district. With nation-wide support, we are targeting to support a total of 5000 businesses with funding ranging from GHc2,000 to GHs50,000.


Letters have been sent to all MMDA’s to publicize and select top 100 start-ups, micro, small and medium scale enterprises within their jurisdiction for the training, incubation and business advisory services. At the end of the training and the selection process, top 20 businesses in the MMDA for funding by MOBD/NEIP. Any small, micro or start-up businesses can go to their respective districts and pick an application form and complete in order to be part of this process.


This nation-wide training would take place in all 260 MMDA’s. Attached is a list of all MMDA’s in the 16 regions. It will commence from 10th May to 30th June 2020.


The programme which is expected to facilitate the creation of jobs between 30,000 to 50,000 jobs in all the district will achieve the following objectives
