Supporting small businesses in Ghana
What is it about?
Why don't small businesses make use of the support services available in their local area? While it's easy to think of some likely reasons, policy makers need more systematic research evidence if they are to ensure that their often limited resources can be used more effectively.
Why is it important?
Our article reports the findings of one of the first large scale studies to examine the 'non-use' of small business support services in Ghana. We also discuss the methods adopted and how they might be used in future evaluation studies. The article is therefore likely to be of value to policy-makers, researchers and practitioners working in other developing countries, and particularly across sub-Saharan Africa.
