Micro Enterprises

Entrepreneurship in underdeveloped regions is a proven catalyst for transforming the lives of the poor, and positively contributing to community growth. The inherent promise of micro-entrepreneurship is that by setting up small business units catering to specific rural demands, a family can lift itself out of debt, educate its children adequately and move up the socio-economic ladder. Creation of employment opportunities at the village level is integral to curbing migration to towns and cities, and directly feeds into a healthy economic ecosystem. It also leads to equitable opportunities

We have been working with women and youth for over 35 years, and it is this experience and expertise we bring to our micro-enterprise development initiative. Our focus will be on removing impediments to micro-entrepreneurial success by fortifying their knowledge and management practices with key business skills and improving their access to investment and financial linkages. In this regard, we create a space for capability development on:

  • Assessing local need based services / products
  • Feasibility assessment, developing a sound business model
  • Assigning value, costing, pricing
  • Market and competitor analysis
  • Value addition and value chain
  • Institutional linkages and mentoring
