Evidence of success
The project contributes to self-employment among women.
From 2011 to 2018, it has assessed 671 women, and in that same period, 148 businesses have been established by women. As a result, 31 jobs have been created, and during that time, 1,726 personal consultancy have been made.
Therefore, the project is encouraging women to become self-employment and to achieve their personal and professional goals.
One of the main obstacles faced during the implementation of this project is how those women who want to open a business, do so out of necessity, not opportunity. They ask for a business plan and fund grants to establish a business that can improve their work and personal situation.
Potential for learning or transfer
This program helps to boost self-employment among women, improving female unemployment rates in the local economy and job creation.
One of the main factor of success is having a good collaborative relationship with financial institutions. Most of the business projects need funding. So it is needed agreements with banks or public institutions that offer fund grants.
It is needed to get a good business plan, knowing as much details as possible: budget, competition, entrepreneurs profile, legal form of the company, products or services offered, resources needed, financial plan, etc.
Services of tutoring and monitoring are essential to go along with the new businesses in their first steps.
