Promoting Financial Inclusion:

Tele-Bere is actively promoting financial inclusion through functional Village Savings and Loans
(VSL) Schemes. To date Tele-Bere has successfully mobilised over 150 VSL groups in the
Bolgatanga-East District of the Upper East Region of Ghana with a total membership of over 5000
(majority of whom are women and youth); Tele-Bere’s current VSL Scheme is being used as a
building block to achieve the following:
 Formalising the VSL Scheme through the introduction of ICT as means to attracting more
formal financial and business development services
 Facilitating collective investment in product aggregation schemes for members
 Developing commercially viable and bankable business plans for a ‘basket of products’ and
facilitating collective businesses around forest and farm related products using tools such
Market Analysis and Development (MA&D), Forest Incubation and Risk Assessment Business and
Participatory Market System Development (PMSD) Approaches
