On October 16, in Bendery, and on October 25 in Rybnitsa, the PBN's team held contests of business plans developed by participants who were trained on the basics of entrepreneurship in the period of September-October 2017 as a part of the LEADER project with financial support from the World Jewish Relief. All participants demonstrated an excellent level of knowledge in the field of business planning, as well as a high level of motivation and willingness to create their own business.

As a result of the competition, both independent commissions of experts noted 9 business projects as the most promising ones and recommended those projects to the Donor in order to gain the grant support.
