MyShop for Micro-Entrepreneurs
Micro-entrepreneurs are important to economies, especially in Africa. They are usually the primary economic players in rural and semi urban areas. By definition, they can employ up to 5 people, but are usually run solely by the entrepreneur. However, they often fail to grow because of a lack of funding, poor accounting practices and inadequate training and support. Research has shown that one of the best ways of improving the chance of an entrepreneur succeeding in their business venture is by having a mentor to support and advise them.
