TotalEnergies Marketing Kenya under the TotalEnergies Young Dealer Program gives business opportunities to young Kenyans with capital support for station dealership while they gain the experience and stand-alone financial strength to stand on their own.
The careers of service station staff chosen for this programme are developed through training with the aim of becoming independent financial dealers over time, through disciplined savings of part of their profits, towards building their working capital. This model continues to produce business in our industry which was expanded in 2017 and will continue to receive our support as a way to invest in human capital in the local community.
TotalEnergies Marketing Kenya was a major participant in the Startupper of the Year challenge that was launched by the Group towards the end of 2015 to identity and support innovative business ideas for development.
We are constantly providing coaching and appropriate mentorship to the winners of the first challenge. We review their performance and development to help stimulate the establishment of their small enterprises that deliver on employment creation.
A second challenge has been arranged is running in 2018-2019 period with over 800 projects/ideas received from applicants.
