Due to the saturation in the Namibian job market, MSR encourages its members to start their own businesses. Members who are interested in starting their own business or who already have their own business and are in need of support, are enrolled at institutions offering entrepreneurship training. MSR provides members with information regarding the process of registering your own business as well as intuitions offering technical and financial support to young entrepreneurs.
MSR also has a variety of projects to help employ its members seen below.
Members created tables and chairs out of scrap wood to sell. This made affordable furniture and provides members with entrepreneurial skills.
Members created decorative trees out of wire and beads to sell for the holiday season. The trees made quality decoration for the season and gave members an entrepreneurial experience.
Paper Brick Project:
Members used recycled paper and newspaper to make paper bricks that can be used as fuel, which will reduce the indiscriminate wood gathering that happens every day around Windhoek. The pilot has been financed by Avril Payment Solutions. Thank you to the United Nations Development Programme for their assistance with this project
Waterless Car Wash
Members were assisted to start a waterless car wash business. MSR provided the startup materials and guided five of the members in running their businesses.
