Strengthening Entrepreneurial skills for Local Market in Turkana
The project has previously held capacity-building activities for MSMEs which proved to be very successful and GIZ would now like to build on what has been done to build the capacity of another 200 MSMEs within Turkana West Sub-County. This was achieved by equipping selected micro and small enterprises (MSE) with business and entrepreneurial skills to start or scale (grow and expand) their businesses within Turkana West Subcounty. Through this, it was expected that the business’s growth would be marked by improved income and the creation of more employment opportunities. The objective of this assignment was that 200 micro and small enterprises (MSE) drawn from women and men, from refugee and host communities successfully completed measures to strengthen entrepreneurial skills. Out of the target 200 MSE, 45% (90) were women business owners or managers.80% of the beneficiaries were recruited from the host community while the remaining 20% came from the refugee community.
