“This will go a long way to position businesses in the horticulture sector for support from the financial sector and impact communities,” she said, and commended the participants for going through the entire process of coaching.

Mrs Assibey-Yeboah said the tool would make their businesses robust, resilient, and competitive.

She expressed the excitement that as a programme, they had positively impacted the lives of people and their businesses.

Madam Joana Chemel, the Project Coordinator at MDF West Africa, expressed appreciation to HortiFresh for the opportunity to train the businesses and commended the 13 entrepreneurs for completing the programme.

She said, this was a key milestone in getting their businesses ready to tap into opportunities available in the financial sector.

She urged all the female entrepreneurs to strictly adhere and implement the various elements of the programme in the day-to-day management of their businesses.

Madam Esther Owusu Kwantabisah, Founder of Abukay Cuisine, thanked the coaches for their encouragement and support through the programme.
