Community-Based Enterprise Development (C-BED)

Developed to reach aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners in underserved vulnerable communities, the ILO’s C-BED programme supports individuals to start or improve businesses for enhanced livelihoods.

Building on the knowledge and experience of peers

C-BED makes business development training available in any community. Participants are able to help each other understand formal business concepts, like costing or marketing, and develop stronger skills for business improvement.

A wide range of topics

C-BED provides practical support to businesses and entrepreneurs in hard-to-reach communities. The programme consists of two core C-BED training packages, C-BED for Aspiring Entrepreneurs (AE) and C-BED for Small Business Operators (SBO), as well as other modules on related topics.

The fact that there is no need for expert trainers makes the whole difference… C-BED is the best fit for us.

The training gave me a goal. I can see that in two or three years time I will be a successful entrepreneur.
