The project aims to develop supportive instruments for young Roma entrepreneurs with a focus on entrepreneurship, instruments developed by REDI in partnership with other 4 NGOs to produce a pedagogical module, a toolkit, video materials (10 media files on entrepreneurship initiatives) and a blended learning event.

The grant supports REDI to become an ecosystem builder and connector between Roma entrepreneurs operating in their communities and the mainstream business environment.
During the project, REDI staff and field officers pass through capacity building training and activities to provide business development services to Roma entrepreneurs. Human resource is developed to become loan officers, business facilitators that will enable access to finance to support entrepreneurs grow their businesses.
