PeaceNexus Foundation

Local Sourcing in Mozambique

April 19, 2014
  • Organisation:
    Building Markets, Canada
  • Where:
    Mozambique

This PeaceNexus Grant allowed Building Markets to fund the exploratory phase of a project aiming at promoting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and pushing forward the local procurement agenda in Mozambique. Activities included launching the SME Growth Portal that has since become a hub of information, mapping of key players and current initiatives, developing guidance and training business actors to bid in public tenders.

The online portal links up local producers with international investors, enabling them to source locally.
