The objective of this training is to provide an opportunity for potential women entrepreneurs and business owners to gain innovative entrepreneurial skills, financial capacity, sharing of knowledge, skills training, and enterprise development in order to help them access market, networking and business opportunities.

The greatest restorer of pride, dignity and a sense of self is the ability and opportunity to take care of oneself and one’s family through earning a decent living to address basic needs for food, shelter, clothing, etc.
