SME Business Training & Coaching Loop   Do you run a business, cooperative or association in the agro-allied or construction sectors? Do you want to develop, improve or grow your business but don’t know how?

 

If you answered yes to one of the above questions, you might be interested in applying for the SME Business Training & Coaching Loop. This new training and coaching approach is implemented by the GIZ-SEDIN Programme (Pro-Poor Growth & Promotion of Employment Programme).

 

It addresses three of the most important challenges facing many businesses in Nigeria today:

 Inadequate business knowledge and management skills.

 Lack of guidance and practical steps that could bring about change and development.

 Insufficient information on access to financial resources to grow businesses.

 

The Loop offers tailor-made solutions for your enterprise to address some of these challenges and can provide you with new ideas for your business development, improvement and growth. This unique opportunity to develop, improve or grow your business is implemented by GIZ-SEDIN Programme only in Niger, Ogun and Plateau States.

 

NOTE: Only businesses located in these 3 states can apply. Applications from other states will be rejected.
