What is PEPZ?
The Private Enterprise Programme Zambia (PEPZ) is a 5-year programme funded with UK aid from the British government. We have a vision of a buoyant private sector where Zambian businesses can flourish and deliver economic growth, sustainable jobs and prosperity for all. Working towards this vision we identify and meet business needs in a number of ways.
- Through PEPZ Business Linkages we forge partnerships between Zambian suppliers and large corporations in selected high-potential sectors in order to open up routes to market for local companies.
- Through PEPZ Business Development Services we improve the access to quality business advisory and consultancy services for small and medium-sized businesses in order to build and strengthen business skills.
- Through the Nyamuka Zambia Business Plan Competition we encourage entrepreneurs to seize business opportunities that they have identified and take the next steps towards business success.
- Through the PEPZ Accelerator Fund we facilitate access to finance for businesses in the Solwezi area who are investment-ready and poised for substantial growth.
PEPZ is a UK aid-funded programme implemented by Nathan Associates London Limited.
