Access to Skills

Our capacity building programmes support SMEs through one-on-one consultancy, mentorship and coaching opportunities. We equip SMEs with business skills required to meet tender requirements and quality standards of large corporates; ultimately integrating them into their supply chains.

Access to Finance

The African Partner Pool (APP) brings businesses together. It connects companies across sectors with the local business partners they need to get the job done.

Companies operating in Africa need local suppliers to work effectively. But local SMEs often struggle to make themselves visible to these companies. The APP directory allows African businesses to promote the products and services they can deliver and the standards they can deliver to. This makes it easier for big companies to find the right suppliers.

The APP is a community where buyers and suppliers across Africa can engage one another, discover new opportunities and grow their business.

The African Partner Pool (APP) is IIA’s ‘Access to Markets’ pillar. The APP is an online marketplace that allows SMEs to promote the products and services they can deliver and the standards they can deliver to. This makes it easier for big companies to find the right local suppliers to work with.

Working with a certified business coach assigned to him was an enlightening experience as the coach doubled up as an accountability partner in presenting his deliverables.
“The coaching gave me so much clarity. It gave me focus, and I got the confidence to progress with the initiatives I was doing,” Kefa said in an interview.

Centerprise Holdings Ltd 
I was paired with a certified business coach through the Invest in Africa and MasterCard Foundation Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Recovery and Resilience Program. The guidance from the coach helped bring in more clients, thus more revenue, and positioned the business in a sustainable growth trajectory. Adopting the lessons and revamping the company profile gave me the confidence to share my work and source for clients actively.
