MicroMentor is a Mercy Corps program that empowers business owners and experienced business mentors to connect in mentoring relationships. The MicroMentor web platform—an integrated system of technology, training, materials, and processes—is designed to deliver high-quality business mentoring cost-effectively and at scale. With MicroMentor:

  • Individual entrepreneurs can solve business challenges through mentoring relationships with experienced peers and business professionals.
  • Enterprise development organizations can build local mentoring networks and increase the quality, scope, and scale of the mentoring services they provide to their clients.
  • Companies and business networks can support small businesses through skills-based volunteerism.

Mercy Corps currently serves US business owners through the MicroMentor program, but is expanding into Tunisia through a grant provided by the Agence Francaise de Développement (AFD).   This project will scale access to business mentoring and expertise by partnering with enterprise development organizations (also referred to as Affiliates) to enable these agencies to incorporate a low-cost, high-impact mentoring program into their services. The project goal is to help micro, small and medium entrepreneurs build successful businesses with the end goal of helping them to grow faster, generate more revenue, and employ more people.
