The intervention is designed with the aim of helping women to strengthen their economic independence in our operation regions. Its implementation is based on a strong partnership with local, national associations in the countries concerned and their respective ministries. Its design embraces a holistic view contemplating three levels of intervention: on a macro level, it intends to facilitate the policy dialogue between the key stakeholders in order to promote women entrepreneurship; on the meso level, the goal is to strengthen the capacities of regional professional women’s associations so that they are able to contribute to an environment conducive to the development of women’s entrepreneurship; finally, on the micro level, it promotes training, coaching, identification and facilitation of business partnerships opportunities and access to finance.
