Swedish-Somali Business Programme
The main purpose of the Swedish-Somali Business Development Programme (SSBP) is job creation, especially for women and young people, and to contribute to the reconstruction of Somalia. The programme consists of two different grants:
- Grant of 35 000 SEK gives the opportunity to explore a business idea for three months with financial support.
- Grant of up to 200 000 SEK gives the opportunity to develop a business idea for twelve months with financial support.
SSBP has supported business start-ups in several sectors such as agriculture, livestock, fisheries, communication, technology, health and renewable energy and has a presence in the whole country.
SSBP is a joint programme between Forum Syd and Business Sweden. To submit an application and for more information, visit www.ssbp.nu.
