Mozambique to northern Mozambique, gaining a deeper understanding of the unique business environment and challenges of the north. This inception phase year will pilot and develop a longer term strategy for the next phase.

Project goal: 

The inception phase aims to refine understanding of the targeted areas, profile of beneficiaries, and
