Micro-Enterprise Development Programme (MEDEP) Phase II (NEP/03/018)
PDF File Size: 506 KB | Download   
The Micro-Enterprise Development Programme (MEDEP) aims to diversify the livelihoods and increase the incomes of low-income families. MEDEP takes an integrated and market oriented approach to micro-enterprise development, providing and coordinating entrepreneurship training, technical skills training, and micro-finance access for potential micro-entrepreneurs. Local market and resource studies inform product and enterprise selection. MEDEP stresses the areas surrounding local market centres as the critical locales for identifying, training, and assisting selected poor men and women to initiate and grow their micro-enterprises.
MEDEP is a “nationally-executed” project of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) under the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Supplies (MoICS). The United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) and New Zealand AID (NZAID) join UNDP in funding Phase II of MEDEP.
MEDEP Phase II significantly refined its definition of MEDEP beneficiaries, stressing that the programme should go beyond merely serving the poor, targeting a significant percentage of its beneficiaries as “ultra poor”, and socially excluded. A minimum of 30% of MEDEP beneficiaries should be members of socially-excluded castes (Dalits), indigenous nationalities (Indigenous Nationalities), or ultra poor of any caste of ethnic origin. This change is part of a major initiative of UNDP, its donor partners, and the government to assist categories of persons well below the poverty line who have long been bypassed by development programming. Additionally, MEDEP maintains its target of having 70% of its entrepreneurs be women.
