Daayitwa supports young business entrepreneurs to accelerate their rural micro and small enterprises (MSEs), create jobs and incubate other local entrepreneurs.  District-based competitions, comprised of community voting and expert evaluation, select entrepreneurs who receive seed funding, training, mentorship and networking.  REAP has supported 45 entrepreneurs (23 women) in 2 Province 3 districts of Makwanpur and Ramechhap and in 2 Province 5 districts of Gulmi and Palpa by enhancing their access to financial investment.  Presently, we are scaling deep by collaborating with three municipal governments in Province 5 to deploy credit guarantee scheme in supporting growth-oriented MSEs while bolstering local enterprise ecosystem, together with local banks and academic institutions.
