By linking people to information, capital, and markets, we have helped millions to create lasting prosperity for their families and communities.TechnoServe has a long-standing commitment to pursuing rigorous results measurement. Whenever possible, we leverage external evaluators to conduct independent assessments and evaluate our implementation model using experimental design methods... In 2017, TechnoServe's work helped transform the lives of 2.3 million people based on an average of five people per family. This was accomplished by targeting improvements in farms, businesses, and industries in 29 countries, helping create a better future for families in the developing world. Specifically, in 2017 TechnoServe: - Helped beneficiaries generate $189 million in additional revenue and wages - Directly benefited 461,000 farmers, businesses, and employees - Catalyzed $28 million in private sector investment in farms and businesses, as an indication of long-term growth...

Our work is rooted in the idea that given the opportunity, hardworking men and women in even the poorest places can generate income, jobs and wealth for their families and communities. With nearly five decades of proven results, we believe in the power of private enterprise to transform lives.Impulsa Tu EmpresaSmall and growing businesses (SGBs) serve as engines of economic growth for their communities, but in the developing world these businesses account for only 16 percent of GDP and 18 percent of total employment. Entrepreneurs in the developing world often lack the resources and capital to build small business. Impulsa Tu Empresa provides mentoring, market connections and access to capital to help high-potential SGBs develop, fund and implement business plans in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. SGBs that are selected for support receive specialized training, followed by 10 months of mentoring and business development services. They are also trained in good gender practices such as gender-balanced teams, in order to promote gender equality. By 2017, Impulsa Tu Empresa seeks to increase total revenue of participating businesses by $25 million and generate 750 new jobs in the five target countries.[To be named][To be named]Impulsa Tu Empresa is a partnership with Argidius Foundation, the Multilateral Investment Fund, Walmart Foundation, Citi Foundation and PIMCO Foundation.[To be named][To be named]Population(s) Served: Unemployed, underemployed, and dislocated people Economically disadvantaged, low-income, and poor people[To be named]Small Businesses[To be named]Guatemala[To be named]Honduras[To be named]El Salvador[To be named]Nicaragua[To be named]STRYDEStrengthening Rural Youth Development Through Enterprise (STRYDE) -- Recognizing that more than half of Africa's youth is unemployed and two-thirds lives in rural areas, TechnoServe has partnered with MasterCard Foundation to help rural young women and men in East Africa transition to economic independence. The Strengthening Rural Youth Development through Enterprise (STRYDE) program delivers comprehensive training for young women and men ages 18 to 30, focusing on personal effectiveness, financial literacy and entrepreneurship. After the training, STRYDE participants receive business mentorship and links to financing and job opportunities. STRYDE equips young people in Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, and Tanzania with the skills and knowledge they need to take advantage of economic opportunities both on and off the farm. The second phase of STRYDE will build on the successes and lessons of the first phase of STRYDE, with a key component of the model focused on sustainability. STRYDE 2.0 looks to scale the model for new geographies, strengthen the aftercare component of the program, sustain the model by building the capacity of local partners to provide trainings, and share key findings about the improvement of the model.[To be named]MasterCard Foundation[To be named]East African Youthrural young women and men in East Africa[To be named]Kenya[To be named]Rwanda[To be named]Uganda[To be named]Tanzania[To be named]Poor CommunitiesTechnoServe is widely recognized for our work growing strong markets that create income, jobs and wealth in poor communities.
