    Most studies on Micro enterprise development reveal that the intrinsic
    problem facing the creation of successful SMEs is lack of entrepreneurial
    skills. The COMPASS project in Malawi therefore has a programme that
    places a sharp focus on ED (Entreprenuership Development) for certain
    targeted business groups. COMPASS carefully selected those groups that
    seemed most enterprising: SOVCRAFT, Magomero Fruit Processors, Tsogolo
    la Ana, Ndirande women briquette makers, Matindi Youth Organisation and
    Chiwembe women mushroom growers.

    Through the provision of business development services to the targeted
    beneficiaries, the COMPASS project has been able to provide training in
    business management and capacity building skills. This document reports on
    how such training was conducted in the months of June, July and August
    2003. This was a demand-driven programme that was heavily participatory. A
    sound accomplishment of this task depended a lot on participation, which took
    place at all levels including the evaluation of the programme. Participation
    brought with it cross fertilisation of various ideas on what could easily work
    well and truly benefit the participants. Where possible, attempts were made to
    try to internalize this initiative to ensure sustainability of the programme.
    However, due to time and resource constraints, the training programme had
    limited follow-up support.

    Profound and sincere thanks are due to the COMPASS staff and other NGOs
    such as CABUNGO for constructive support and intellectual advice on this
    training programme. Thanks should also be extended to Magomero Fruit
    Processors, Matindi Youth Organisation and SOVCRAFT for their enthusiasm
    and level of participation in this programme.


    The COMPASS project in Malawi has been involved in the creating
    sustainable natural resource-based businesses. Several studies have been
    undertaken to work out how best this can be achieved. Through such studies
    COMPASS has been able to explore a number of business development needs
    for the targeted beneficiaries. A consultant was therefore engaged to provide
    Business Development Services meant to build on, and incorporate training in
    the fundamentals of entrepreneurship.

    The business development consultant visited the targeted groups to conduct
    training whose standard contents addressed at least the following areas

       Managing income and expenses, managing revenues and profits, sharing
        benefits and apportioning costs
       Principles of supply and demand
       Marketing concept and customer focus
       Quality assurance (products and services)
       Individual and group responsibilities and performance
       Financial management fundamentals including cash flow management
       Transparency, responsibility and accountability
       Business planning
       Legal aspects of registration and incorporation and liability


        A number of meetings with COMPASS officials and project-targeted
        beneficiaries were held to discuss the contents, structure and methodologies
        for the training and relevant Business Development Services.

        Initial contacts with the members of each targeted group were of critical
        importance in providing information concerning conditions at the start of the
        training (baseline data) and expected conditions at end of the training.
        Baselines eventually provided a basis against which progress was to be
        measured monitored and reported upon. The baseline revealed the following

                              Dissatisfaction and arguments about benefits sharing
                               arrangements. Punctuality & absenteeism being singled out as
                               the main problems.
                              Lack of proper administrative and operational structures
                               resulting in work inefficiencies.

                              No transparency and accountability.
                              Insufficient knowledge on product costing and poor pricing.
                              Lack of basic internal controls.

Matindi Youth                 Need for group reorganisation in readiness for a planned major
Organisation                   expansion.
                              Ignorance about marketing concepts.
                              No idea about sharing benefits fairly.
                              Lack of accounting knowledge.

SOVCRAFT                      Problem of sharing benefits fairly.
                              Hazy idea on price determination by market forces.
                              Poor knowledge about product costing and pricing.

The concept of participation was employed and proved essential. It provided
spontaneous cooperation between the targeted beneficiaries, their agreement to work
together and to contribute actively to the choice and implementation of training
interventions and programs that would help achieve their goals as viable
entrepreneurs. This therefore avoided application of a standard training package for
all targeted groups. For example, most groups sought to include a session that looked

at how they can write business proposals for funding community projects. In other
groups, it was found that they lacked most record keeping skills. The Matindi Group
became particularly interested in establishment and running of cooperatives.

Participation is considered a strategic choice and a necessary requirement to meet the
challenges that the business environment imposes on the socio-economic, political,
and cultural aspects of life in all societies. Accordingly, participation allowed all
groups to take part in decision-making processes that affect their lives. Given the
advantages of participation, it was essential that all interventions be based on
participation. As a result, any attempted follow up and evaluations were also
Training sessions conducted for each group were subjected to continuous monitoring
and evaluation by the trainers and trainees. The inclusion of the trainees in the
evaluation process was extremely helpful in updating and modifying the course
contents for both the betterment and satisfaction of all participants. Evaluation was an
integral part of the activity’s continuous improvement process. Additionally, it was
used as a basis for observing results. It therefore became necessary that measurable
objectives and performance indicators be developed.

         The methods of evaluation used were objective observation, comments and
         feedback from the participants and assignments.
         Throughout the training, participants were continuously asked to comment on
         how well they liked a topic under discussion. Participants were later asked to
         discuss any problems they faced and demonstrate how they would solve them.
         Hands on problem solving therefore became the hallmark of the continuous
         evaluation exercise.
         The participants felt the time for training was not enough and did ask if
         follow-up visits could be arranged to check on their progress. This would
         allow more reinforcement of the concepts learnt.
         At the end of training, each group was left with a hands-on assignment to do.
         This was a practical task, which differed depending on each group’s needs.
         However, common tasks given to all groups included:
              1)        Up-date the set of accounting ledgers.
              2)        Record a list of all assets and liabilities.
              3)        Prepare profit and loss statement.
              4)        Strategize and plan how to keep focus on the customer.
              5)        Decide what each group would do to improve and maintain quality
                        of their products.
         At the time of writing this report, most groups had not finished their
         Meeting and training the targeted groups took place as follows:

The intended participants are those that were drawn from the target groups. Since the
targeted groups were in some cases a part of a larger business group, beneficiaries of
the training inevitably included unintended participants. Inclusion of unintended
participants in the training programme was a positive externality that added synergy
and avoided discrimination to some group members, which in turn promoted group

    attract funding


    To all business groups trained, the trainer noted a number of common issues
    relevant to all targeted beneficiaries and their goals. Such issues include,
    business association development, demand for increased access to business
    development facilities, sustainable livelihoods and gender. These issues
    represent some commonalties across the goals of the targeted beneficiaries.
    They are also important to sustainable business development.

    6.1 Increased Access to business development facilities

    All targeted business groups visited were appreciative of the technical
    assistance needed to build commercially viable businesses. Such facilities
    have also been useful in giving the business groups an opportunity to take
    other broader initiatives to develop sustainable and dynamic enterprises.

    It has also been noted that such facilities will help the targeted business groups
    to attract necessary financing for their ventures apart from increasing
    entrepreneurial skills. Most business groups are now organisationally able to
    handle finances at a basic level.

    There is now apparent demand for the training of trainers and facilitators in
    the business development programme underway. To achieve this, there is need
    to encourage innovative approaches to learning through, for example, the
    formation of entrepreneur clubs under the guidance of a facilitator. It would be
    most appropriate if such training focused more on entrepreneurial attitudes.

    6.2. Business Association Development

    There is need to support the establishment of a business association. The
    business association can play a central role in providing support services to
    member business groups and in representing their interests to the government.

    6.3. Sustainable livelihoods

    All members of the business groups see their entrepreneurial activities as a
    means to generate income for improved livelihoods and employment as well
    as sustainable development.

    6.4. Gender

    The term gender broadly refers to balanced participation (between men and
    women) in economic, political and social life. In Malawi, however, as in most
    parts of the developing world, women have lagged in economic, political, and
    social life.

    Gender equality is an internationally promoted ideal and has significant
    development implications as far as equity and efficiency is concerned. Gender

balance is also important in maximising the economic development potential
of any society.

It is therefore pleasing to note that women’s participation in all these targeted
groups is significant thus contributing to narrowing of the gap between men
and women in economic life.

    Most of the business groups visited felt they could make more money in
    addition to reducing the variability of their earnings if they had a chance to
    diversify. The table below shows some of the viable business ideas.

Support to these business groups requires a sustained focus on providing business
development services. To achieve this, there is need to make sure that the services are
tailor-made and that the groups themselves are able to train their members. More
trainings and follow-up visits are required to re-inforce concepts learnt. To ensure
sustainability in the availability of such a service, there must be an increased effort on
internalization of the training so that there is local capacity to continue. In addition,
internalized training would be sustainable only if the service was provided at a fee.
