(Business in Cameroon) - The Cameroonian division of the International Labor Office (ILO) has completed a youth-centered training on business creation in the agro-pastoral sector.

20 alumni of the Youth Agro-pastoral Entrepreneurship Promotion Program (Youth-AEP) received a 10-day training on how to find their agro-pastoral enterprise idea and how to develop it. ILO sees in this program an opportunity to better support youth entrepreneurs in giving life to their ideas, setting their business models and creating their business in the sector.

It is the third of such training in three years. This brings to 60 the number of trainees,” said trainer Ibrahima D.

Implemented by the Cameroonian government, via the agriculture ministry, the Youth-AEP is backed by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). ILO provides technical support through strengthened skills for implementing partners. It also provides needed capacity building tools for beneficiaries.
