About YBEC Group
YBEC Group is a Zambian  principle-based cooperative enterprise that  seeks to put  people,  rather than  the  pursuit  of  profit  at  the  center  of  its  business.  We follow a broader set of values than those associated purely with making a profit- namely self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity.  The democratic nature of our Coop encourages participation, broadens ownership and fosters empowerment of youth.
Economic Trends
The escalating levels of unemployment in many sections of the society pose a serious threat to the young generation. If the trend goes unchecked, the situation can potentially occasion chaos to the society as high unemployment inevitably leads to an infinite array of social problems. Graduate and Non-Graduate youths are entangled in a predicament of scarcity of formal employment and affordable financial assistance for start-up businesses. On the one hand, present industry is not enough to adequately cater for the magnitude of youths demanding for formal employment, on the other, the banking sector demands securities or collateral for anyone to access high interest loans.
The challenge of lack of financial literacy, entrepreneurial expertise and business innovation further exacerbates the youth chances of successfully launching start-up businesses and turning them into dream companies or corporations they desire. In a business environment where business competition is extensive, the youth need to equip themselves with the “business amour” of entrepreneurial innovation.
Business and Employment Solutions
  •  YBEC Group’s model  of  enterprise envisions to contribute  to  youth  employment  not only by providing  salaried employment to its members(cooperators),  but  also facilitating  job  creation  through  self-employment.
  • The model invites youths from both rural and urban areas and persons of all academic (graduates and non-graduate) and skill levels including recent graduates who have limited prospects of finding jobs.
  • For youths that are looking to start a business, YBEC Group enables young people to pool limited financial resources with knowledge in an enterprise that can respond to nearly every need and productive activity.
  • The scale of investments to be injected in a single business will be dependent on the size and capital requirements of the business.
  • Cooperators have democratic rights to decide on important matters affecting the operations of each business.
