Micro Enterprise Development for Women

Philippines This vocationally oriented project provides training for 500 women from poor Filipino neighborhoods to become self-employed entrepreneurs every year. The majority of the participants are mothers without vocational training or higher education. They want to further their education in the field of gastronomy, catering and sales in order to improve their family income and pay for their children’s schools. The training includes different topics such as hygiene, bookkeeping, entrepreneurship, price calculation and work organization. Besides, the curriculum also provides for the participants to work on themselves by concretizing their plans and strengthening their self-confidence. Personal advisors assist the women entrepreneurs during the development of their business and prepare them step by step for their new step in the working world.
