Activity: ICT for Developing the Capacities of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in Rural Areas
website of the activity
Activity description: Two projects in Bangladesh and Egypt produced the following within one year: * e-services and educational software on e-marketing, business management and accounting; * 130 trained operators from 46 telecentres (master trainers); * around 2,000 trained rural MSMEs; * 56 community awareness sessions to sensitize about 10,000 people on using ICT. The projects increased the ICT usage by MSMEs: Internet usage (51% to 93%), marketing (18% to 70%), ICT in daily business (50% to 75%). A telecentre can train more MSMEs, who may request more services; which makes the projects sustainability. IDB also plans to replicate it in other countries.
