BeniBiz (2017-2022), co-financed by the Embassy of the Netherlands and the Swiss Cooperation Office, aims to strengthen economic opportunities and empowerment of entrepreneurs in Benin, with a special focus on young people and women. BeniBiz’ objective is to stimulate the growth of micro and small enterprises, hence reducing youth unemployment, and among other, strengthening economic autonomy of young men and women as well as developing local economic network. BeniBiz is implemented by TechnoServe and BOPInc and has an institutional anchoring in three ministries (agriculture, SMEs and Finance).
