PG Biashara is an initiative that supports entrepreneurs in their journey to turn ideas into businesses. This includes growing and strengthening existing enterprises.Biashara is a Kiswahili word for “business” and it emphasizes the fact that with this initiative UPG is supporting entrepreneurs and all those looking to create impact through business.
UPG Biashara will make it easier for aspiring entrepreneurs to learn how to kick start their business and also fine-tune potential business ideas with the goal of making the world a better place.
With a reasonable number of enterprises in our community, we can achieve exponential growth locally as United People Global’s (UPG) concern is to make an impact on every community on a global scale.United People Global’s (UPG) goal is to step in and mediate as such increasing the productivity of aspiring entrepreneurs and existing enterprises with the required skillset and funding for selected leaders.
“A significant number of people globally have great dreams and business ideas but lack adequate technical know-how and funding to make this a reality”.United People Global’s (UPG) mission of encouraging and enabling people from all walks of life globally birthed this initiative to grow individuals with potential business ideas and overcome the challenges, thereby making our local communities stronger.
