Dear friends and mentors,

Unfortunately, I was not able to make it to the module 4 calls, though I heard the first recording thanks to Scott, therefore I need your help and feedback about my subject for our feature story..

My subject will be about Small and Medium Enterprises, especially for women. The importance of SME, the challenges faced by the start-ups, and recommendations to support SME. I will seek to meet women own their SME.

How does this sound? I was reading about it and I believe in the women empowerment in economy, because in my opinion and personal experience, enabling women must start from economic grounds.

Thank you dears, looking forward for your replies.

SMEs for women empowerement

I think this is a good area to feature. Just ensure that you have adequate data/ statistics on the status, gaps and prospects. Bringing out the expected benefits of women engaging in SMEs and being supported will enrich your story. The issue is why should women be focused and not any other group of society. This should be able to make your feature story more relevant to today

So, go for your SME feature story

THats a good topic to explore

THats a good topic to explore and write about. What do women love to do? what kind of enterprises do they undertake? what is the role of their husbands and other members of their family? what are the positive and negative effects of women's engagement in the economy to her person, family and community?

Good luck Ikirimat!

You made me plan to pay more attention on some aspect like are women supported by their husbands and families, or society in general. Thank you for answering these questions dear Paulina I will try to answer them.
