The first quarter business condition report identified some specific challenges as the key limitations to business expansion in the region. These were employment and financing condition. As part of the STCCI’s advocacy, we approached the International Finance Corporation (IFC) for support under its Local Economic Development Program (LED) and have acquired support from IFC to run a training program for all STCCI members in these areas.
