Low literacy rates and the traditional use of family names without first names in northern Ghana made it difficult for USAID’s ADVANCE II project to use paper rosters to accurately monitor the attendance and effectiveness of their business and agricultural trainings.

Project interventions included technology and business trainings, mentorship programs, demonstrations of good agricultural practices, especially relating to climate-smart techniques, and networking initiatives. ADVANCE II has established a foundation for sustainable business partnerships, while addressing gaps and barriers along the value chain to ensure income growth for all value chain actors.
