We do not sell products; we put on the market complete designed value chains
Upendo Enterprise has developed a working concept “VEP” – Village Enterprise Package through which the company offers complete packages for start of rural based small scale industries.
What is in the package?
The package includes; skills development, business management, machinery using environmental friendly technology, installation kits with all necessary accessories and easy-to-read user’s manual.
Do you provide technical support?
A hands-on technical support is guaranteed by our technical team during and after installations as well as training in preventive maintenance. The company is currently developing E-learning tools and online support.
How do you know the needs of different communities?
In collaboration with our local partners, we carry out needs assessments in rural communities to find out the challenges, specific needs as well as opportunities and discuss the proposed solutions with the communities concerned.
A viability study including environmental assessment is then conducted and the proposed solution is worked up by our innovation and design team who designs a complete value chain.
The proposed value chain is sent back and presented to the community concerned. If approved the “complete package” is prepared and sent to the community.
Who pays for the VEP?
The Village Enterprise packages are provided through a specifically designed microfinance programme – Up-En-Do.
