Vodafone Ghana has embarked on a move to entrench its reputation as the digital telco of the future by empowering SMEs in the month of September this year.

According to Angela Mensah-Poku, Director at Vodafone Business Solutions (VBS), who made this known, a number of initiatives had already been lined up, including SME Clinics across the regions, a master plan to register 1,000 SMEs online, as well as a Masterclass programme, in partnership with CEIBS to build the capacity of these businesses.

The SME Masterclass programme will also train senior managers of selected SMEs on key modules, including corporate governance, innovation and entrepreneurship growth, financial management and social media.

“We are excited about the comprehensive activities we have put together for our customers. Our support for SMEs in Ghana over the years has seen tremendous results; first for our customers and then for us as a business. This year will be no different as we continue to empower SMEs to embrace the exciting future. We know how critical mobile financial services are to SMEs. For most companies, it’s an integral part of their operations. In view of this, we have also created a unique Vodafone Cash offer to enable SMEs conduct unlimited transactions on the platform at GH¢3 per month throughout the month of September,” she said.

She revealed that SMEs played a very crucial role in Ghana’s economy, demonstrating the capacity to contribute enormously to the general economic growth, hence the decision to assist them.

“With the world at an advanced stage of digitisation, Vodafone wants to be at the forefront of the drive to make these businesses relevant and competitive.”

The highlight of the SME month will be the Annual SMEGA Awards during which thriving companies in the country would be rewarded and acknowledged for a good job done.
