SANAD and Mowgli Mentoring Team up to Support Syrian and Lebanese Entrepreneurs in Lebanon

The Entrepreneurship Academy of the SANAD Fund for MSME and Mowgli Mentoring have launched their second joint initiative, a mentoring program aimed at boosting the success of Syrian and Lebanese micro-entrepreneurs in the Middle East. 

Following on the success of the six-month pilot project conducted in Jordan in 2018, the SANAD Technical Assistance Facility (TAF) Lebanon Mentoring Program officially kicked off with a Mentoring Awareness Session delivered in July, and a 5-day Kickstart workshop that took place end of September, both facilitated by Mowgli Mentoring. The Mentoring Awareness Sessions paved the way for a rigorous evaluation process that saw 15 business leaders and professionals selected and trained as mentors before being matched with 15 Lebanese and Syrian micro-entrepreneurs sourced from the client base of “Al Majmoua” and “Ibdaa” microfinance institutions.
