National “Your Enterprise” Programme

Supreme Decree 012-2017-PRODUCE

On 24th August 2017, the Council of Ministers passed a Supreme Decree creating the National “Your Enterprise” Programme, in response to the high levels of business not reported to the tax authorities but appearing among micro and small enterprises registered on the 2015 National Household Survey.

The programme will run for ten (10) years and aims to help raise productivity and sales in micro and small enterprises, making it easier for these firms to join the financial system, access formal lending, digitise their activity and develop entrepreneurial skills, using the Entrepreneurial Development Centres authorised by the Ministry for Production.

The programme’s beneficiaries include micro and small enterprises led by women, by people suffering handicaps, older adults and families with at-risk children and adolescents.

The Programme's Operating Manual will be issued in no more than thirty (30) days after the Decree becomes law.
