More than 2,500 project leaders have been sensitised to the Tamweeli programme aimed at strengthening the financial inclusion of VSE-SMEs in several regions of Tunisia, namely the Greater Tunis, Kairouan, Sfax, Sousse, Gafsa, Kebili and Tozeur, over a year.
This was announced at the closing ceremony of the initiative Tamweeli Meetup Tour Tuesday, an entrepreneurial tour targeting these project holders.
In each region, entrepreneurs and project holders have participated in face-to-face and online conferences with experts, support structures and public and private organisations with the aim of facilitating the compiling and submission of their applications for funding to various funding structures through the platform Tamweeli.tn.
In fact, the Tamweeli programme offers several services, including “Tamweeli ASSIST” (launched in 2020) which has helped more than 300 SMEs to improve their accounting and business management. There are also two programmes “Tamweeli PLATFORM” (launched in 2020) which has coached more than 1,000 SMEs in the preparation of their application for funding to achieve their projects and “Tamweeli ACADEMY” (launched in 2022) which has trained online and offline more than 150 SMEs on topics (accounting, finance, business management …).
For the coming period, Tamweeli is preparing for the launch of a new action, at the beginning of next year, namely “Meetup Afterwork”, whose purpose is to allow entrepreneurs to pitch their projects and defend their cases directly in front of the invited financial institutions. Through these meetings, they will also be able to develop their networking and thus increase their chances of finding the financing that meet their needs.
The tamweeli programs are implemented with support from the US International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) and the initiative of the Middle East Investment Initiative (MEII) which is a non-profit organiSation offering access to financing and technical assistance programmes to SMEs in order to stimulate economic activity and the creation of sustainable jobs in the Middle East and North Africa region.
