USAID, World Council, Visa introduce ‘Enko’ business development platform

With the goal of boosting businesses owned by Venezuelan and Ecuadorian entrepreneurs participating in the Economic Inclusion Project (EIP), World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) and USAID partnered with Visa to create “Enko”—a free, virtual business training platform accessible from any mobile device.
