Okt 2015

Hello subscriber subscriber,

Jacana selected the following three entrepreneurs from the first batch of trainees. These three have proven that they are eager to learn and have perseverance. They deserve our support and will be individually guided by Jacana for one year in expanding their business.



Lodge manager Hilda Munkanda wants to attract more guests for "Take a Break Lodge". The Lodge generates income for a Youth project. Jacana is convinced that Hilda is a perfect role model for the youth.

Why donate?

The selected entrepreneurs achieved great things by their own means and without appropriate education. They show resilience and have enormous hidden capacities which Jacana wants to reveal.

They successfully completed Jacana's training in business, financial and marketing planning. We all know how inspiring a conference or a short training can be, but the next morning we are absorbed again by our day-to-day activities.

Therefore Jacana wants to guide each of them in their individual needs for one year and make sure that the improvements are imbedded in the day-to-day running of the company. That costs time and a little bit of money. Every small amount is more than welcome.


Why doesn't Jacana focus on the poorest?

Jacana focuses on people who have worked hard and took risks to get rid of the label "poorest". They are the role models that Africa needs and as employees they are the most sustainable source of income for the poorest people.
