What will be your key focus?

As a Mentor, you will be a critical success factor for the program, providing participants with one-on-one support and guidance for the development of their small business, with additional support from the Innovation Team at Good Shepherd Microfinance. Through regular contact, you’ll have the opportunity to be a sounding board and share your knowledge of business success to make a real difference in someone’s life. In addition, you’ll get to:

  • Enhance your professional and personal development
  • Learn by teaching
  • Meet new people
  • Get exposed to new ideas
  • End each session knowing your experience has made a powerful impact in someone’s new business journey


What about you?

We have 17 eager mentees with a range of needs from their potential mentors. These cover experience in industries such as tourism, e-book publishing, retail, construction, trades and even gaming!  You will ideally have a broad range of knowledge of various business functions such as sales, marketing, revenue generation, procurement and WH&S. We can supply a complete mentee profile of all participants for you to review upon application, which will enable you to choose the person who is the best fit for your knowledge and skills.
