African Women on the Rise

Over the past two decades, governments have made a concerted effort to improve and enhance education among the female population of Ghana. Their objective is to encourage and increase their participation in economic growth. Today, women are building brands at an extraordinary rate in Ghana’s capital Accra and beyond.

In Ghana, women make up approximately 51% of the overall population and their role in socio-economic development is fundamental. According to the Mastercard index of female entrepreneurship, Ghana leads with about 46% of female-owned businesses. In this article, we will be highlighting some of the most exciting female-led businesses in Ghana in 2020.

Key Compliance Consultancy

Key Compliance Consultancy is female-led company founded in 2018 by Nana Yaa Prah and Stella Akua Prah. Their aim is to facilitate the business registration process, aiding in acquiring licenses, compliance reports and permits. They are essentially a one stop shop for business registration in Ghana.

Business compliance services are essential in Ghana currently, as Ghana recently opened their doors to those in the diaspora to come home and facilitate the development and regeneration process that is currently taking place in Ghana. Setting up a business in Ghana legally can be daunting, especially for newcomers who have no experience handling legal and business matters in Ghana. Key Compliance Consultancy can ease the process making the experience of setting up a business in Ghana simple and hassle free.

Their mission at Key Compliance Consultancy is to promote a sustainable business culture among SME’s in Ghana.
