Introducing the Bacha Entrepreneurship Project (BEP)

Welcome to the Bacha Entrepreneurship Project (BEP), a transformative initiative aimed at empowering young Basotho entrepreneurs to unleash their potential and drive economic growth in Lesotho.

BEP, a collaborative effort between Revenue Services Lesotho (RSL), Standard Lesotho Bank (SLB), and Basotho Enterprises Development Corporation (BEDCO), was established to combat youth unemployment by fostering a culture of entrepreneurship among the youth. Since its inception in 2014, BEP has successfully funded and developed 28 businesses across various sectors of the economy, creating over 100 jobs and capacitating 188 aspiring entrepreneurs with essential skills.
