 Scaling up tourism business

The current social business model of Kara-Tunga has proven to be inclusive, including low-income people on the supply side as employees, producers and entrepreneurs, bringing the benefits of tourism directly to low-income communities. Also it has proven to be viable, as demonstrated by the financial figures over the first two years of its operations.

Unfortunately, the financial reserves of Kara-Tunga are not able to cover the investments required to further build the capacity of tourism guides in the region through relevant training.
