WIDU has been operating in Cameroon since November 2019. Together with the Diaspora we have supported over 1,000 new and existing businesses to secure employment and livelihoods. Entrepreneurs from all over the country have built sustainable, innovative and profitable businesses.

As WIDU builds a wider base of partners, we will be able to support even more entrepreneurs. Our partners at the Ministry of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, Social Economy and Handicrafts, also continue to support and work with us to further broaden our base of cooperation in the country.

Quotes from Coaching Organisations

"We've transformed so many lives in 14 months through WIDU, the thrill when we call an entrepreneur to ask for their ID for payment, the smiles that greet us when we go to the field for the evaluation visit, the gratitude of developers begging us to tell them where to find WIDU to thank them, we wish it would never end."  

Steve Deffo Tawembe, VKII Cameroun, Cameroon

“From my past and current experience in coaching of entrepreneurial projects, WIDU has been one of the most effective runs in Cameroon. As coaching organization manager, it is meaningful to get access to well-conceived processes that facilitate our daily job. My own appreciation is that the well-managed preparation phase has led WIDU to be a great success.”

Krystel Nopoudem, Oceane, Cameroon

WIDU is always free of charge

We do not ever ask diaspora donors or African entrepreneurs, nor their relatives or friends, to pay for our services. WIDU funding and coaching is and will always be provided for free.
Do not under any circumstances agree to give a share of your WIDU grant to a broker or a middle-man. These brokers/middle-men are breaking the law and will be sued by us.
