1. What is FairShare?
** FairShare is an avenue for qualifying micro and small enterprises (MSEs) and cooperatives to access public procurement Opportunities worth up to $1 Million.

The main components of the programme are :
** Online database of MSEs who have been certified by the FairShare Unit
** Listing of available procurement Opportunities under $1 million from Government Ministries and other Governmental entities
** A training programme for MSEs to build entrepreneurial and business skills

2. How would FairShare benefit me?
As a micro or small business owner, FairShare offers you :

Marketing :
** FairShare offers a free Opportunity for you to display your goods and services online to a wider client base – the Public Sector.

Information :
** FairShare will help you access information on different procurement Opportunities across the public sector, and submit quotes and proposals all in one location.

Training :
** Each MSE within FairShare will have access to training programmes to help build business and entrepreneurial skills for use in the local, regional and international context. Some aspects to be featured are marketing, preparation of proposals and finances.

3. Why was FairShare developed?
** FairShare was designed to help micro and small enterprises overcome limitations due to size, structure and available human/capital resources by increasing the accessibility of information on public sector procurement Opportunities via this online web-portal.

It will also provide a centralized location for the advertisement of public sector procurement Opportunities with the objective of providing small businesses with the access.

4. Is there any funding attached to the FairShare Programme?
** FairShare does not facilitate a loan, grant or any other type of funding. If you are seeking financial assistance, we recommend visiting the nearest branch of the National
