Bridging the Gap


Due Diligence for Agricultural Investments Training in Ghana

In May, Connexus designed and conducted a Due Diligence for Agricultural Investments training for financial institutions as part of the USAID-funded Financing Ghanaian Agriculture Project (FinGAP) in Accra and Tamale, Ghana. The purpose of this training was to build participants’ capacities in reviewing and using financial statements, understanding the key components of conducting thorough due diligence for agricultural investments, and learning how to gather data during an on-site visit to an agricultural enterprise. Overall, 67 people participated in the training, of which 63% were men and 37% were women. The training was very well received, including one participant who exclaimed that this was “by far the best USAID training I have participated in.”
