Through its four inter-related packages – Generate Your Business Ideas (GYBI), Start Your Business (SYB), Improve Your Business (IYB) and Expand Your Business (EYB). SIYB aims to create jobs by enabling potential and existing small entrepreneurs to (i) start viable businesses, (ii) to increase the profitability of their existing enterprises and (iii) to improve the working conditions of their employees in a way that enhances productivity.

Related to the above training is the GET Ahead training package – this focus at promoting enterprise development among women in poverty who want to start or are already engaged in small-scale business. The GET Ahead training package differs from conventional business training materials by highlighting essential entrepreneurial skills from a gender perspective, whether applied to starting or improving an individual, family or group business.

It addresses the practical and strategic needs of low income women in enterprise by strengthening their basic business and people management skills. It shows women how to develop their personal entrepreneurial traits and obtain support through groups, networks and institutions dealing with enterprise development. The GET Ahead training package promotes the economic and social empowerment of women alongside men in enterprise.
