Supporting the development of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) is a strategic pillar of International Finance Corporation's (IFC's) private enterprise partnerships (PEP) for Africa initiative, which coordinates advisory services efforts in sub-Saharan Africa. In partnership with business development service providers (BDSPs), PEP Africa provides business edge's (BE's) methodology, tools, and content, and also trains trainers and consultants. Three years after the establishment of BE in South Africa, IFC approached the country s finance and accounting services sector education training authority (FASSET), to secure a training accreditation for BE. Currently Tushiyah is focusing on business development, and is also discussing the possibility of increasing the number of trainers and of becoming the country s master franchiser.
