Solidaridad Supporting Small Businesses To Access Finance for COVID-19 Resilience

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected many businesses, including small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the cocoa sector that provide critical services to smallholder farmers in Ghana.

These small businesses, when provided with the needed support, play a vital role in improving the livelihoods of farmers through yield enhancements and market linkages.

Access to timely and affordable finance is, therefore, essential to fuel the growth of these enterprises during this pandemic.
