The West Africa Governance and Economic Sustainability in Extractive Areas Project (WAGES) implemented in Burkina Faso, Ghana, and Guinea has made economic development in extractive communities in West Africa a top priority of its programming. The project recognized a lot of potential in working closely with small scale entrepreneurs in extractive communities. This decision was predominantly attributed to informal businesses being one of the main drivers of trade and economy in West Africa.
