A new questionnaire is available online as part of the design of a pilot project in Benin organized by the NGO ‘AFFORD – African Foundation for Development’.
The primary objective of the project is to examine the investment potential of the diaspora in the small and medium enterprise (SME) sector in order to strengthen entrepreneurship and create sustainable employment in Benin. ABC Benin offers different types of programs in which you can participate such as :
- Training of diaspora investors in order to prepare them to become ‘investor-ready’ (this in order to introduce businesses to access to finance);
- Engaging the diaspora as volunteers to mentor and guide other businesses;
Provide investment opportunities to local businesses;
- Participate in trade missions to Benin;
The questionnaire wishes to identify who are the diaspora investors interested in investing in Benin, what are their personal and professional backgrounds with regard to their businesses. The questionnaire wants to understand the business ideas of these investors as well as their main sector of activity in order to determine their needs and preferences. All this with the aim of contributing to the development of a dynamic and well-supported SME sector in Benin.
You can participate by completing the questionnaire either in French or in English on this link.
