Starting My Own Small Business


The training manuals are a set of easy to use publications that can be applied to formal and informal training settings.  For both formal and informal training settings two manuals are provided: one for the facilitator and one for the trainee to use.  The training manuals are elementary and are intended to be an introduction to ethical entrepreneurship. They make no claim to be a complete resource material on starting a small business. Rather, they are core programmes that outline the key topics on entrepreneurship and may be expanded or abbreviated as the teaching situation demands. They also aim at instilling a heightened sense of self-confidence, particularly among non-formal learners, and awakening them to the possibility that self-employment could be a viable career option.
