Through a robust business support program leveraging ICT, data and innovation, the Entrepreneur Support Program aims to help grassroots and MSMEs, especially women-owned enterprises, rebuild and improve their enterprises in Nigeria's agriculture and food landscape after the impact of COVID-19.


The Entrepreneur Support Program was established by Nourishing Africa in collaboration with the Mastercard Foundation and the United States African Development Foundation.


The Nourishing Africa Entrepreneur Support Program is geared towards young Nigerian entrepreneurs who want to rebuild and strengthen their agri-food business.


Through a robust business support Program that leverages on ICT, data and innovation, the Entrepreneur Support Program aims to help grassroots and MSMEs, particularly women-led businesses, across the Nigeria's agriculture and food landscape rebuild and strengthen their businesses after the impact of COVID-19.


The Program will be carried out in four phases:


From the initial applications received, 800 applicants will be selected to participate in taking our Online Business Resilience Diagnostic tool, which will help identify the areas of their businesses where cracks may exist, and provide recommendations on how to fix any identified cracks as well as rebuild their business model to be more resilient.

500 out of the participants are then selected to proceed to undergo an online 8-day seminar focused on building and strengthening their agri-food businesses.

125 participants will then be selected for direct small grant interventions of up to N3,500,000 phased over a 1-year period. The other 375 agri-food entrepreneurs will be connected to our financial partners for favourable funding options.

Ongoing support and mentoring over a 1-year period will be provided to all 800 agri-food entrepreneurs who were selected from the application stage
