In Ghana 72% of women are economically active. The percentage of women involved in agriculture among the households working in the sector is 41%. Women also produce as much as 70% of the country's food crops. Moreover, women working in the informal sector dominate micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME), which make up the majority of Ghana's economy. Hence women have a key stake in the economic development of the country. While Ghanaian women's engagement in business activities is high, their position in the value chain is often lower than men's in terms of access to productive resources such as land and credit. Women's access to financial services is weaker and they have fewer career opportunities.
