YES program to support SMEs

Bank South Pacific (BSP), in partnership with Australian Business Volunteers (ABV), collaborated to develop and provide tailored business skills development for small businesses and entrepreneurs through the “Your Enterprise Scheme”, or YES Program.

ABV commenced the YES program for selected BSP SME Customers on November 13th in Port Moresby, aimed at providing business skills by way of facilitating mentoring sessions and workshops for participants.

BSP Deputy General Manager Customer Experience & Support, Peter Boutcher, when opening the workshop, said: “BSP has always supported economic growth through the support of SMEs in PNG. This training is a strong and practical investment that will support our small business customers in the region.

“This program will be the first of six programs rolled out. It will end with the mentoring in between classroom sessions on 6th December, 2019,” Boutcher added.

The training will be conducted over four weeks and includes eight full days of workshop, allowing participants to be involved in one-on-one mentoring sessions with highly skilled business professionals from ABV.

“ABV takes pride in working at the intersection of business and development, and is delighted to see BSP’s commitment to its people and the region,” said ABV facilitator, Russell Lewis.
