THE Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications (GIFEC) is exploring other strategic partnerships to raise additional income to support and sustain its projects.
The Chief Executive (CEO) of GIFEC, Mr Abraham Kofi Asante, explained that although GIFEC was not a commercial entity, it needed to sustain its projects and it, therefore, constantly looked for business models to generate additional income.
GIFEC, he said, was in the process of establishing links with different entities to make use of its Community Information Centres (CICs) to offer services that would generate income aside the traditional funding sources.
“We will use our CIC to do business. For example, if you want to do any secretarial work and you come to the CIC, we can offer you space. As we offer you the space and you do your business, we generate money to pay the bills and keep the place going,” he said at a media engagement in Accra.
