The SheTrades Commonwealth Project
The International Trade Centre (ITC) is implemented the SheTrades Commonwealth Project from April 2018 to March 2021. The Project’s aim was to increase economic growth and job creation in Commonwealth countries through the increased participation of women-owned businesses (WOBs), positioning the Commonwealth at the forefront of creating trade and investment opportunities for women.
Since April 2018, the Project has worked to develop the capacity of export-oriented women entrepreneurs and
women-owned businesses (WOBs) in Ghana in Information Technology and Business Process Outsourcing (IT&BPO), Agribusiness (Cocoa and Shea), Tourism, and Textiles and Apparel (T&A) sectors, in close cooperation and partnership with these Business Support Organisations (BSOs), private sector actors as well as other sector-relevant stakeholders.
To date, the Project has supported over 500 WOBs in Ghana through a combination of online and offline training, mentoring programmes, and business-generation activities. As part of its project plan, SheTrades Commonwealth in partnership with the National Board Small Scale Industries (NBSSI) has drafted a Ghana-focused directory of BSOs and their relevant services targeted at MSMEs, in particular WOBs.

Business Support Services in Ghana
All information in this list and on the business pages on these organizations were sourced from the business support organisations directory put together by National Board for Small Scale Industries (NBSSI) and the International Trade Centre’s SheTrades Commonwealth (ITC SheTrades Commonwealth). The idea here is to offer micro, small and medium enterprises in Ghana a one-stop-shop Business Support Organisation (BSO) Directory
This list is not an exhaustive list of BSOs, more BSOs will be incorporated gradually in this Directory. This Directory will be hosted by NBSSI as the anchor BSO for Ghanaian WOBs and will continually update and disseminate.
