The ECoaching Program

Our flagship program was created to allow organizations to cost-effectively target the many microenterprises, both formal and informal, in low-income areas. These business owners require coaching more than business plans, which may be too complex or difficult due to a lack of business skills or training.  ECoaching is an introductory overview program that delivers customized, real-time, business-specific support.

 

Each week entrepreneurs complete homework assignments and engage in discussions about their businesses. They learn the basics of marketing, cash flow, and growth plans.  It's simple and effective.
