Asanko Mines trains 20 in business & financial literacy

2 min read

Twenty local vendors within the Amansie South and West districts have received three months of training in business management and financial literacy by Asanko Mines and Enablis Ghana.

The training of the local contractors will ensure most of the local vendors effectively take up outsourced procurement from Asanko Mines to increase the living standards of the locals within the mine’s operational areas.

The 20 local contractors after completing the training will position themselves in a more competitive status to bid bigger contracts from local and foreign businesses.

Businesses management, book and record keeping and financial literacy are the major courses the local businesses were taken through.

The move is in line with the Minerals Commission Regulations 2012, LI 2173, which compels medium-to-large scale mining companies to give stipulated volume of businesses to local Ghanaian vendors.

Beneficiaries of the training are optimistic of enhanced productivity.

“We are very grateful to Asanko mines for adding value to our knowledge and we strongly believe that this value added will go a long way to enhance our businesses,” they told

The trainees further appealed for the training to be extended to other local businesses to broaden the local vendors’ fund base and expertise.

General Manager of Asanko Mines Eben Swanepoel explains the training falls in line with the mine’s numerous social interventions to boost the local economy.

“I hope this training initiative will help vendors establish the right business management process systems and ensure effective delivery of goods and services to the required quality standards to Asanko and the mining industry in Ghana and beyond.”

Mr Swanepoel urged beneficiaries during graduation ceremony to “maximize the advantages of the knowledge theybhave acquired so as to be able to enhance their expertise and compete effectively with their counterparts.”
