USAID LENS in partnership with the Karak Local Development Unit "LDU" organized the first in a series of Micro and Small enterprise "MSE" Festivals in Karak on Monday July 24th. More than 210 people attended the event, which included 12 local partners (BSPs, NGOs and 2 Microfinance institutions) who promoted their products and services.
During the event, USAID LENS hosted two training sessions from the MSE Toolkit, which reached 90 participants, as well as a “Diagnose Your Business” booth where MSEs could engage with consultants on how to expand their business.
During the opening event, the Deputy Head of the Karak Municipality Committee thanked the project for their support to the LDU and creating and launching the MSE Toolkit. Follow up surveys will be conducted with a sample of participants to assess the usefulness of the resources obtained through the Festival.
