Supporting Enterprise Development in Mining Communities

TechnoServe has developed projects for several mining companies to catalyze economic development in the communities where they operate. This includes building the capacity of local businesses to supply goods and services to mining operations and encouraging a diversified local economy by providing business training to enterprises unrelated to the mining industry.
