Business Facilitation: A Snapshot
If you’ve ever thought of starting your own business, you know what a daunting task it can be. Imagine trying to do it where there are no roads, no electricity and no training opportunities!
In many of the places that we work, basic infrastructure is either poor or non-existent, making it a difficult place for entrepreneurs to start or improve their own businesses.
We work with partners who are interested in strengthening the business environment in their community. They form the Community Business Council. With their leadership, we work together to identify impediments to success and begin problem solving and implementing a variety of solutions, each tailored to the community’s needs.
To further support the community’s success, we train business owners in the skills they require to start new endeavours and improve existing enterprises. Through a Business Coach, local business owners can get the information, support and advice they need to meet their requirements, all for free, giving them a good start on the path to success.
