Applicants where instructed regularly through the website www.aftesi.info/vetepunesimi on how to make a better application. The process was also very well visible in the media, in order to have a better reach of audience throughout the country. After the deadline's application, the selected candidates were presented with helpful materials and in the end UNDP supported financially 20 new businesses to open and consolidate in their first two years.
