WIDU.africa is a project commissioned by German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH - the German Technical Development Cooperation Agency. WIDU was officially launched in December 2021.
Together with WIDU, Tunisians living in Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden or Switzerland can support their friends or family in their entrepreneurial endeavors through an innovative and digital approach. In concrete terms, each entrepreneur in Tunisia sponsored by a relative living in the 7 participating countries in Europe, can obtain a grant from WIDU of up to EUR 2,500, and benefit from 3 personalized coaching sessions.
On January 1st, WIDU additionally opened a call for applications to allow as many entrepreneurs as possible to benefit from WIDU's support. Since then, more than 200 entrepreneurs have registered on the platform.
The platform will soon be available again for new applications.
