Supporting the Entrepreneurship in Angola

A public-private partnership between UNDP, Chevron and the Government of Angola to promote enterprise development in Angola.

UNDP-Chevron Angola Enterprise Program (AEP)

In June 2004, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Chevron launched the Angola Enterprise Programme (AEP) to promote enterprise development in Angola by supporting a process by building a consensus around a common vision and a national strategy for enterprise development. This public private partnership envisaged four key areas: the Enabling Environment (EE), Micro-Finance (MF), Vocational Training (VT) and Business Development Services (BDS). The three-year four million dollar programme was reviewed in March 2006 and the Mid Term Review (MTR) recommended that the programme should focus on MF and BDS in order to yield significant impact given the available resources.
