Supporting Papua New Guinea’s entrepreneurs

Supporting Papua New Guinea’s entrepreneurs

We are piloting a new version of our MoneyMinded financial education program in Papua New Guinea (PNG), specifically tailored to support the growth of small to medium sized businesses (SME's). 

Designed to educate participants about how to set up and manage a small business, the MoneyMinded SME Business Basics program is targeting start up or existing SME owners in local communities – those who have the potential to benefit from improved financial management skills and literacy.  

Speaking at the program launch, PNG Prime Minister Hon. Peter O'Neill CMG MP, said: "Government and business must work together to ensure small businesses thrive and prosper. When small businesses are successful they employ more people and increase the prosperity of their local areas. Programs like the MoneyMinded SME Business Basics Workshops will help our entrepreneurs better understand financial issues that are vital for their success.”

The program is being piloted in PNG with a view to expanding to other Pacific Island countries including Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and Kiribati.
