It occurred to me that I had mentioned my time at Hopeline and the SME (small and medium enterprise) study in recent blog writings but haven’t explained the details. Besides taking classes here in Ghana, our program also connects us, in pairs, with different organizations. We are to work with and serve this organization in hopes to learn about the organization and about Ghana by participating in daily activities. My placement is at Hopeline Institute. This organization provides business loans and training to entrepreneurs for the purpose of public sector development and empowerment. My assignment at Hopeline is in part for Hopeline and in part for Hopeline’s US partner organization, Partners Worldwide, as they lay the foundation for an organizational evaluation.
