Freetown Business School is pleased to announce that we delivered a two-day training to service providers in partnership with German International Cooperation (GIZ) on Preparing Business Plans for MSMEs.


Under the Facility for Innovation (F4I) initiative, MSMEs are provided grants if they have a viable business case that will improve the lives of the owner(s), the community, and make an impact on the country as a whole. Service providers contracted by GIZ assist these MSMEs in preparing their business plans, therefore, it is important that this process is delivered in a coherent and professional manner.

The training was delivered by one of our co-founders Alfred Akibo-Betts, Melvic Greene, School Coordinator – FBS and Jacob Kaindoh. Over the two-day period, the training highlighted international best practices in formulating Business Plans; and preparing financials including cash flow statements, and business start-up costs. These best practices were adapted into our local context and we decided on a reporting format that will neatly put together all the areas covered during the training. The service providers were happy to share their experiences and were very pleased with what we delivered the training.


Jacques Sam, Head of Private Sector Development at GIZ, stated at the end of the training that he was very happy with the training contents and the delivery style of the facilitators. He further went on to say how happy he was to collaborate with FBS and is looking forward to a very good working relationship.
