MadgascarGrad1 - Nehemiah E-Community

Over the period of one year 150 students went through BE I, 55 students went through BE II, and 22 students went through BE III. A total of 16 students completed their Kingdom Operational Business Plans, and Malanto Rabary, founder of the newly formed First Christian Credit Union of Madagascar was selected as the 1st Place winner of the business plan competition!

Malanto will represent Madagascar at the BE International Business plan competition on September 20th during Nehemiah Week.  She will compete with 8 other presenters: one from Canada, two from Eastern Europe and five from the United States. Malanto’s vision is to launch her Credit Union by 2014.  We invite you to join us at Nehemiah Week to meet Malanto and other Biblical Entrepreneurs who will be competing in the 2012 International Business Plan Competition.


Also among the businesses that were launched or expanded as a result of the BE program in Madagascar were: Eco-Tourism, a printing company, a poultry business, a fish farm, a computer manufacturer, a cell phone accessories business, a conference center, a vegetable extract business, and many more.
