EXPRESSION OF INTEREST: Access to finance opportunity for MSMEs in Sierra Leone

The West Africa Competitiveness Programme has 1 regional Programme and 16 National Components, funded by the European Union and implemented with the support of Technical Partners.

In Sierra Leone, the International Trade Center (ITC) supports the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) in the WACOMP implementation at national level and support the country’s integration into regional and international trade systems.

WACOMP Sierra Leone aims to increase the competitiveness of small businesses within the selected value chains by strengthening and improving the delivery services MSMEs receive from institutions.

In this regard, ITC plans to organise a training for MSMEs on the targeted sectors in order to strengthen their capacities on Access to Finance.
