“The purpose of the learning modules is to provide simple, practical information and tools to enable learners to apply what they have learned to developing their ideas and their enterprises. To further help aspiring VA, the MYVA project has also developed a set of templates for a one-page business plan which can be downloaded and completed within an hour”.
