Informal Economy creates Business linkage with Formal Economy

Zimbabwe Chamber of Informal Economy Associations through National Policy Framework for Informal Economy has been advocating for appropriate government policies that facilitate the development of synergies/linkages between Informal economy and formal businesses. Even though the government is yet to develop a policy that facilitates the development of linkages between the informal economy and formal businesses, ZCIEA Harare territorial women’s group managed to create supply linkage with a big formal institution (name withheld). This women’s group (12 members) received funds from the ZCIEA Resilience Building program to initiate projects of their choice. They decided to do a poultry project. They kicked off their project with 250 broilers, which grew well and reached 4 weeks without complications.
