Launched in late 2014, TechnoServe implemented a business plan competition program with funding from the World Bank and working in conjunction with the Government of Benin. This partnership aimed to create jobs by strengthening formal small and medium enterprises, with a focus on high-potential industries such as transportation, construction, and agribusiness.
Women in developing countries often lack access to formal savings accounts, creating challenges for female entrepreneurs. TechnoServe, in partnership with Vodacom, the World Bank and the Center for Global Development, is currently implementing a $2 million, two-year program funded by ExxonMobil Foundation in Tanzania and Mozambique.
