African Institute of Corporate Citizenship (AICC) is building Gender Based Violence survivors capacity to operate rural enterprises as part of empowering them economically. Survivors can increasingly run their own enterprises, but if they are not fully trained, their socio-economic contributions and entrepreneurial potential will largely remain unrecognized and untapped. This is why AICC through its Public Private Partnership (PPP) approach engaged Some institutions like Small and Medium Enterprise Development Institute (SMEDI) and Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) to train the survivors as upcoming entrepreneurs to enhance their knowledge, skills and abilities in business development skills so that they can manage their small scale businesses on a more sustainable basis. The upcoming entrepreneurs (survivors) are likely to face challenges such as lack of access to business and lack of proper marketing information, facing some financial problems as well as lack of book keeping skills and lack of business/ technical skills.
