    Resumé

    The private sector is increasingly seen as a means of enhancing economic growth and alleviating poverty in developing countries. However, most private-sector development programmes do not take the reality of the private sector into account. This article examines the interaction between a Danish development programme in Ghana aimed at reducing poverty through business-to-business collaboration and the Ghanaian private sector. It demonstrates the importance of contextual knowledge in designing development programmes and proposes an analytical framework with which this knowledge might be obtained.
