Access to small business start-up loans and training are extremely hard to come by, if not impossible, in rural areas of Africa. This means that pro-active, entrepreneurial members of local communities never get to realise their dream of running a small enterprise to lift their families out of poverty. They are trapped by a lack of opportunity to develop themselves.
