Visionaria Network is now accepting applications for the Empowered Entrepreneur Training Fund (EETF). EETF is a small grants fund designed to partially subsidize training programs for organizations working to sell cookstoves and other energy products in East Africa to train their sales staff or entrepreneurs in critical business, empowerment and leadership training.
The EETF will support organizations in conducting trainings using the Empowered Entrepreneur Training Handbook for entrepreneurs and sales agents – particularly women – who sell or contribute to the improved cookstove value chain (manufacturing, sales, distribution, service, etc.). The Fund may also support organizations in conducting trainings using the Empowered Entrepreneur Training Handbook for youth, with the purpose of having youth participants participate in and build clean energy markets through the sale of fuel efficient cookstoves or cleaner/alternative fuels.
