Together everything becomes possible
The lack of proper entrepreneurial and business skills is cited as one of the major causes of failure of small businesses and income generating activities (IGAs) in Namibia. Having realized this fact and seeing the need to impart best provider in managing IGAs and offering training services has become the core of Namibia Women in Business (NAWIB)’s activities. Over the years NAWIB has emerged as the major actor in small business services provider in the area of training.
Namibia Women in Business (NAWIB) was founded in 1995 as a None Governmental Organization (NGO) to spearhead and tackle challenges faced by women in business small-medium enterprises in general. The major challenges faced by most entrepreneurs at that time and currently include but not limited to the following; lack of access to funding, entrepreneurship skills, and business management skills. Thus NAWIB aims to support Namibians entrepreneurs either cooperatives or individuals to enable them to improve their business thus eventually their socio-economic status.
At its inception NAWIB was gender biased towards promoting women’s business exclusively. However the organization now seeks to promote both men and women in small- medium enterprises as poverty cuts across all gender.
Our main target groups encompasses; people requiring to be as trained cooperatives engaging in income generating activities , small-medium business people etc.
