The Export Trade, Agricultural and Industrial Development Fund (EDAIF) has approved GH¢28.5million to be disbursed to 135 beneficiaries in the public and private sectors.
Specific sectors that received funding included poultry, agricultural production, agro-processing and manufa- cturing.
A statement issued in Accra by Dr Barfour Osei, Chief Executive of EDAIF, said the Fund would continue to provide significant support to Ghanaian producers and entrepreneurs.
It said the export trade, agricultural and industrial-related activities of three public sector institutions were also supported to enable them to implement a number of projects.
“A new phase of the EDAIF funded mango project, which is in its sixth year of implementation, was also supported,” it added.
The Fund said the financial support was approved to expand the mango cultivation by an additional 2,800 acres in all regions of the country in 2015.
The board and management of EDAIF encouraged small-holder Ghanaian cooperatives, associations and businesses to contact the organisation for further information on how to access support.
