1) Supporting Micro and Small Enterprises and NGOs
We provide technical support to individual entreprenuers, groups or clubs and to local NGOs. We help with formulation of comprehensive business plans and organisational strategy, registration and legal issues, completion of documentation for accessing working capital loans from financial institutions, completion and filing of tax returns, new products’ development and setting up efficient processes, systems and networks. We give priority of our support to SMEs run by women and youth (as a way of empowering them) and local NGOs that champion any of the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) locally.
2) Facilitating Trainings
Together with our partners, sponsors and other stakeholders, we organise and facilitate training workshops aimed at horning business skills and acumen targeting owners of eligible SMEs and founders of local non-profits. Some modules or topics covered during these workshops include; introductory and intermediate business management and leadership, principles of sales and customer service, basic business law, taxation, marketing, financial and management accounting.
3) Conducting Surveys and Research
We have experienced and adaptive team that is able to handle simple to complex qualitative or quantitative surveys and research. We do fieldwork and deskwork encompasing systematic data collection, data entry and coding, data analysis using advanced statistical models and systems such as MAXSTAT and SPSS. We also compile comprehensive research reports highlighting groundbreaking insights and recommendations to customers or sponsors.
This service comes at nominal fees based on the scope and duration of the survey or research. The norminal fees are meant just to cover for operational costs associated with the work such as travels. Our fees are however far much less and thus affordable compared with those of commercial research firms. This is why we come in to make a difference to small and growing businesses and NGOs.
