Small Business Development

Our small business development fund provides training to prospective small business owners, market research, product development and small grants (up to $250 US dollars). We have launched candle-making, coffee roasting, and greenhouse initiatives with local communities and entrepreneurs.  We are working together with our partners to adapt proven models to the economically poor Riau Islands.
