Vodafone Ghana sponsored SMEGA 2018 awards to honor the contribution of small and medium enteprises (SMEs) to the socio-economic development of Ghana.

Head of Vodafone Business Solutions Mrs. Angela Mensah-Opoku said Vodafone was holding the event in a period of uncertainty in segments of the economy, especially due to imbalances and deterioration in the financial services sector.

Mrs. Mensah-Opoku noted that in the face of these challenges, Vodafone Ghana saw the need to support and recognize the contribution of SMEs to change the Ghana’s economic outlook.

Mrs. Mensah-Opoku said Vodafone together with other organisers of the awards would continue to urge the government not to renege on its commitment to keeping the SME space afloat at all times since it was the backbone of the country.

Currently SMEs make up 25 per cent of Vodafone Ghana’s revenue portfolio while commanding about 60 per cent in terms of volumes.
