The Private Enterprise Programme Zambia (PEPZ) works with the Zambian private sector to support profitable business growth. We work across three focus sectors that are key to Zambia’s future prosperity:
- Food and agriculture: To promote Zambian agricultural productivity and food processing
- Mining and mining supplies: To strengthen local manufacturing content in the mining sector
- Tourism and hospitality: To increase the Zambian share of tourist spend
PEPZ launched the Zambia Business Growth Fund to support and encourage investment in technology and skills through matched funding.
PEPZ also has an Accelerator Fund, managed on its behalf by Kukula Seed.
From 2015-2017, PEPZ held 3 seasons of the Nyamuka Zambia Business Plan Competition.
