Summary of the proposed Action : Need for Action
Unhealthy market practices in Koforidua market affecting the growth of the market. Activities of market queens, who through the office confered on them created a monopolistic situation in the market -- dictating prices, sending away people who do not regularly sell at the market and take over goods and foodstuff brought from outside and sell on behalf of owner. New markets have thus sprung all round Koforidua whose activities fall on its markets days and taking all the sellers aways.

Proposed Solution
The market is brought back to its orginial situation where the market days compare with Techiman, Ejura, Mankesim and others.

Implementation Plan
Undertaking a nine-month advocacy using study, media campaign, sensitisation and dialogue to remove the constraint affecting the market and its growth.
