II.1.4)Kurze Beschreibung:

Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in Ghana are critical to
achieving economic growth and development. MSMEs form the foundation of
private economic activity in Ghana, accounting for approximately 70% of
GDP. MSMEs employ approximately 85% of the workforce in Ghana. However,
unemployment remains one of the country"s major economic challenges.
This was exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In view of the above, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale
Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for
Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is supporting the Ghanaian
Government to tackle the high rate of unemployment and promote green
jobs via the Support to the Private and Financial Sector (PFS)
programme. The programme commenced in January 2023 and will run until
December 2025. The programme builds on the experience of the previous
Programme for Sustainable Economic Development (PSED) and aims to
improve the employment situation of MSMEs in five regions of Ghana,
i.e., Greater Accra, Ashanti, Bono, Bono East and Ahafo.

This tender serves to recruit consultants who will support the
implementation of four key outputs of the PFS programme, namely, 1)
support for financial services, 2) business development service
offering for MSMEs; 3) employment services for job seekers, especially
for migrants, internally displaced people and the vulnerable
population; 4) promotion of green business opportunities for MSMEs. For
the third output the EU is contributing through co-financing.
