Donation: Business Registration for One Cooperative
The Incubator Fund
Incubator Fund covers start-up costs incurred by Indego Africa in
building successful market access partnerships with new artisan groups.
Business Registration for One Cooperative
Indego Africa works with government registered, for-profit artisan cooperatives. Artisan cooperatives must register with the Rwandan government in order to receive essential services, including financial advice, conflict resolution, and business training. As many of Indego Africa’s cooperative partners cannot afford the registration fee, Indego Africa subsidizes the cost.
