“Business skills training increased our sales.”

In 2020, we added The Chalmers Center’s “Plan For A Better Business + Livelihood Training” that walks participants through a Biblically based model to start or improve their business.
Over the course of 7 weeks, groups explore topics such as examining business ideas, planning production and costs, and preparing for unexpected events. The final lesson wraps up with livelihood training in soap-making or agriculture and serves as both a practical case study and to provide additional business skills.
Milestones from our first business training include:
- 148 Seed Effect groups trained
- 160 individual businesses started
- 19 group businesses started
