This includes mentors from all sectors, with a range of skills including sales, marketing, costing and pricing, finance management, human resource management, engineering services, agro-processing etc. Our appointment of mentors is dependent on the nature, location and numbers of SMEs in need of assistance, currently with a greater need in the more rural provinces.

You will be responsible for assessing the needs of the business and entrepreneur and provide appropriate mentorship to selected entrepreneurs in a range of sectors, across peri-urban and rural areas of the country. Your specific role will then be to facilitate appropriate changes, increase confidence and practical skills, and support market/growth opportunities.
