Applying to the program

Who can apply

Support through Tokafala is available to businesses that meet the following criteria:

 

You are a locally owned business (at least 51% Batswana) and the owner is involved in the business on a day to day basis

Your business has been in operations for at least 6 months, supported by financial (accounting or bank) statements

You have an annual turnover of less than BWP 20 million

You are based in Gaborone or Francistown, or travel there regularly (1-2x per month)

You are convinced your business has growth potential

Your business is NOT limited to primary farming (as the technical and financial nature of the support needed for primary farming are quite different from other enterprises, Tokafala is not well equipped to help farmers. Do you run a farm with processing facilities, you might still qualify)

But you are in need of general business skills development
