BPRM-Micro Business Owners Training & Mentorship Program

About the Program

A total of 65 micro-business owners (groups and individuals) mostly refugees, asylum seekers and host community members participated in the training. Before the training, the groups faced COVID-19 pandemic breakout challenges which led to loss of their business working capital, customers, suppliers, and premises over failing to remit rental dues.


The overall objective of the training was to mentor and coach the 65-micro business owners to develop feasible business plans, provide business and financial management skills as well as market oriented skills needed for them to run stable, sustainable and scalable businesses including supporting them to stay afloat during and after COVID 19 pandemic.
