New Business Training for Eco-businesses

UPDATE: The Future Fuels Project partners have developed a fuel briquette business training for 35 women from 7 fuel briquette production groups in the Lushoto area to provide entrepreneurial and specific briquette market knowledge that can turn simple production into truly viable, operational businesses.

Briquette groups meet once a month in Lukozi, just outside of Lushoto, in order to:

● Obtain information on the briquette market ● Discuss customer feedback on briquette quality and price ● Share knowledge on securing orders ● Share knowledge on increasing production, including working with Chamavita and EVI to development business plans and explore financing options in order to purchase additional press machines. ● Receive record keeping and income and expenditure books
