Titre : Support of small scale rural activities in the valley of the river Senegal (Senegal)

Pays : Sénégal

Date : 2013 -2016

Descriptif
The recent Senegalese government identifies as the major challenges of the years to come, the promotion of entrepreneurship, micro-enterprise and conservation (recovery) of primary natural resources : processes which have to be supported by all actors involved, in a broader concept of governance. In the Indicative Programme of the Italian Cooperation in Senegal, currently ongoing, the private sector is a priority area. The project PAMIR AID 010144 aims to enhance the role that farmers’ organisations, active in rural areas, as ASESCAW(the counterpart of this project), can interpret for endogenous development of the private sector in the field of agriculture and environment, inclusive of women and youth, working for the improvement of management skills and the strengthening of the business fabric in the Senegal River Valley. The project provides for a direct support to 50 Rural Micro-enterprises and 20 Green Micro-enterprises through a continuous (coaching) process, trainings, provision of equipment and credit funds as well as the establishment of a Centre of Support FOR the Micro-enterprise (CAPER) as incubator of new business ideas, proposals ofinclusive business (in contrast withthe generative investmentsof land grabbing) and systematisation of existing services to the enterprise. Around 70% of the target Micro-enterprises is managed by women.
