A lot of people working with Digicel just don't have the training to run a proper business. We thought it was an ideal opportunity to partner with IFC to get  those people trained.

    First we had the crunch. Now we have new competitors who are accessing the market by undercutting our prices. As a result, customers are shifting networks. The Business Edge training I attended in 2008 was very helpful, largely in terms of planning and projections. Now only id we implement the plan A, but we also put to work plans B and C.

    The training was excellent and extremely relevant for SMEs. It will certainly help improve the quality of our SME clients. We're happy to make it happen with support from IFC.

    I am happy to see such a successful ending to this innovative training. The knowledge and skills acquired by our staff will help improve the quality of service at the hotel and contribute to the growth of business helping position Ghana as a preferred tourist destination in the sub-region.
