Micro Business Initiatives

Mosame Trust works with the local adult population to establish micro businesses. This is done through a loan system or occasionally a reward scheme. These are seen as the principal areas where education and advice is needed to help the villagers learn business skills and how to manage their profits. In time we hope this will lead to self sufficiency.
