The support project for consolidation of the economic fabric (PACTE) because the DRC is facing persistent constraints for an increased involvement of private investment in the productive sectors. Indeed, the private sector remains embryonic despite the enormous potential of the country. The combination of PACTE with the support project for private sector development and job creation (PADSP-CE) makes it possible to maximize synergies and consolidate the progress underway. In addition, the project should help to improve the quality of local products and strengthen the value chain. The PACTE comprises three complementary components, namely: (i) capacity-building for the standardization system; (ii) support for female entrepreneurship; and (iii) support for efficient project management.
The overall goal of the project is to promote the industrialization process of the country by consolidating the standardization system and supporting women's entrepreneurship. Its specific objective is to build on the current achievements of PSDPS-CE, promote the emergence of SMEs/SMIs, and support female entrepreneurship by promoting micro-businesses run by women, particularly in product processing.
The direct beneficiaries of the institutional support are: the Ministry of Industry, the Congolese Control Office (OCC), the Faculty of Science and 100 women entrepreneurs mainly involved in processing. The final beneficiaries of the project are the entire DRC population.
