Project description

The TC project is aimed at strengthening the economic resilience of MSMEs, including small-scale producers. To this end, the project advises private sector actors and the political partner on the implementation of market-based approaches. Challenges faced by private sector actors are prepared and integrated into the national discussion. Central meso actors receive training as well as organisational and process consulting. The consulting company is responsible for achieving output 4: "The offer of support for start-ups is improved". Output 4 aims to transform business ideas into market-oriented business models. Potential founders, male and female, should be encouraged to become entrepreneurs. The aim is to strengthen particularly the financial independence of women, which, despite patriarchal social structures, have been affected by the labour emigration of many men and already often take over the role of decision-makers within the family as well as selectively within communities. In the medium to long term, it is envisaged to improve the support for start-ups in Tajikistan.

The expertise of two national experts is required. One of them will be based in Dushanbe, the other one in Khujand.
