The programme provides mentoring, network, business and life skills training, which in turn creates new jobs, regular wages and a wider range of businesses to help local communities to thrive. A holistic model is employed, upskilling and equipping local trainers to ensure the initiative will endure long into the future. Micro-entrepreneurs who are already involved in the training range from children entertainers, fashion designers and diesel mechanics to florists and farmers.
