Since 2012, SPARK has been developing a culture of entrepreneurship in Libya because the economy is struggling to transition from an oil-revenue and public sector based economy, into one that encourages private sector growth. Today, Libya is ranked at the bottom of the ‘Ease of Doing Business’ index. Despite being faced with continuous political and economic instability, SPARK provides Libyan business-owners, particularly women, with access to capital, mentorship opportunities and training programmes to stimulate job creation and economic development.
