Micro Business Catalyst Fund - East Africa

Mushroom Growing Team

A micro business is a very small business that can be started with limited funds, is projected to substantially increase the proprietor’s annual income, can be scaled up rapidly to achieve appreciable revenue generation and is financially sustainable in terms of increasing positive cash flow.

Micro businesses can be established in many developing country industry sectors from sanitation to insurance; agriculture to consumer products; health care to eco-tourism; to name a few.

The Eric C. Douglass Centre’s "Micro Business Catalyst Fund" supports the establishment of promising small business concepts (within economically challenged countries) which can be based upon an already successful ECDC model that we have recently pioneered.
