The International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, has signed three partnership agreements with three institutions in order to boost business training for entrepreneurs in Ghana and Burkina Faso.

IFC signed the agreement under its Business Edge Programme with West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI) of Ghana, Maison de l’Entreprise du Burkina Faso (MEBF) and Pilotes Sarl both in Burkina Faso.

“The two-year agreements will allow thousands of people in Burkina Faso and Ghana to access world-class management training and run more efficient businesses,” said the IFC September 14, 2011 in a statement.

“The expansion of Business Edge solutions will support the growth of smaller businesses in West Africa. Supporting smaller businesses is a major focus of IFC’s work and a stronger SME business sector in West Africa will help create employment and generate growth in the region” said Mary-Jean Moyo, IFC Country Manager for Burkina Faso and Ghana

The Business Edge programme supports growth of smaller businesses in Africa and has already helped more than 100,000 entrepreneurs in emerging markets, improve their skills and profitability.
