This project was launched on 26 June 2016 at Ratanda in Heidelberg.
The proposed project seeks to uplift informal businesses of the economy by providing the following interventions:
- Compliance – equipping businesses with the necessary certification which will see them progressing from being informal to being recognised as fully fledged formal businesses.
- Infrastructure Support – providing 50 SMMEs with the necessary infrastructure support needed to run profitable and vibrant businesses (i.e. Customised Containers)
- Mentoring – capacitating business owners with the right skills by providing support.
- The proposed partnership seeks to accelerate the development of informal traders by providing them with integrated business development interventions that will be implemented in all the 5 regions.
