Learning to invest with Urbanet!

Posted 22 August 2017 in Grantee Partner News   |   Share


Urbanet’s Youth Empowerment and Skill Development Program encourages young Ghanaians to set up businesses or form cooperatives with a range of value chains.

Young women’s employment prospects have improved significantly through the development of skills in Animal Health Management Practices. This year, 60 young women were trained as Animal Health Managers and have qualified as lay veterinarians. A recent graduate, Amadu Ayisha has since saved enough income from the veterinary services she offers within her community to open a small food bar as well.

“I made an amount of GH₵1,800.00 (USD$450) from my services in the first 6 months as an Animal Health Practitioner and decided to invest GH₵1,000.00 (USD$250) of it to start a small cooking business in my community to supplement my income. I learnt this also from the business management training we were given. I have my sister who supports me with my business anytime I have to attend to a farmer. All thanks to URBANET & EMpower”.

Urbanet continue to support young women through training in business management, ICT and encouraging the launch of their own micro-businesses.
