Teaching the skills needed to run a business was the primary focus of the placement, addressing the BMC (business model canvas), financial management and innovative thinking techniques; to both existing and start-up businesses. At the end of the programme all entrepreneur had the opportunity to pitch for a loan of up to 500,000ksh (£3780), which will be backed by their business plan.

We are excited to have Jahmel on board to influence the creative and communication strategies of our marketing.

If you have the question we're sure someone else has too. Its our ethos of You Ask, We Answer we've learnt from Marcus Sheridan
