2WHAT IS QLP
1 INTRODUCTION TO QLP
QUANTUM LEAP PROGRAM(QLP) is a business life coaching program, under the services of PCL, that has been supporting SMEs since November 2019 to strengthen capacity in building the Kenyan economy. The overall purpose of the project is to contribute to improving the livelihood of Kenyan families by increasing SMEs access to economic opportunities, which in turn will benefit their own families and the families of their employees. The participation will include all, and especially women, youth and PWDs entrepreneurs. The project represents a SMEs-specific initiative to address inequalities in the small enterprise sector. It combines gender and minority groups’ equality promotion with enterprise development. Specifically, it envisages direct technical support to local actors thereby enabling them to:
- Improve the business environment for SMEs
- Improve access to markets for SMEs
3.Access financial support
4.Create employment opportunities
The actual delivery of technical support to some SMEs in Kenya and feedback in the past 18 months have revealed a lot of gender and minority groups dynamics in the SME sector in Kenya, where the majority of SMEs are small, marginal, and unstructured. Till date, a majority of Kenyan SMEs have not been able to take advantage of business opportunities and resources available. Often they lack the knowledge and ability to identify market potentials for their products and the skills necessary to start, improve, expand and manage their businesses successfully.
