The Rural Young Entrepreneur Program (PJER)
The Rural Young Entrepreneur Program (PJER) promotes the development of business enterprises and socio-environmental impact in rural areas, combining the access to knowledge, credit, collaborative networks and technologies, that allows young people to start and improve their initiatives. Entrepreneurial training seeks to assist young people in developing their technical and managerial skills, as well as in the development of business projects that they wish to implement in their communities.
The second stage of the PJER is the access to credit. Young graduates of the course and with the Business Project in hand can access a seed credit line through the Footpaths background, our microcredit strategy.
"We are very happy for the positive results of this first stage of the project. We hope that access to credit will drive the realisation of the ideas developed throughout training. We appreciate the contribution and participation of all those involved so far", highlights Aurigele Alves, Program Director of Adel.
