Access to finance
The role of MSMEs globally is significant as it offers economic health and diverse opportunities to the development of the economies. Lesotho’s small businesses’ market is growing, albeit slowly (Index Mundi, 2013)
MSMEs have suffered a great deal in their marketing initiatives, which have forced most of them to be concentrated on the very lowest end of business (survivalists)
In fulfilment of our mandate to develop Basotho enterprises, the Basotho Enterprise Development Corporation (BEDCO) has therefore initiated a project to assist MSMEs to better access markets locally, regionally, and internationally.
Business Incubation was a key component of the PED programme, with activities which ran throughout almost the entire lifetime of PED. The aim of the BI component was to develop a strategy and implementation plan for business incubation in Lesotho that included piloting a virtual incubation programme.
Promoting Enterprise Development
The Promoting Enterprise Development (PED) programme was established to support the development of Basotho micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in Lesotho.
programme creates opportunities for young people to engage in solidarity activities abroad or in their country in projects that benefit communities.
