Mocambique: Tecla tillhör en ekonomisk förening, Asociacao de Chizizira. Tillsammans med de andra medlemmarna har de över 100 bikupor och förra året producerade de över 350 liter honung. Det betyder inga enorma inkomster, men är ett viktigt komplement till jordbruket i området.

Development Talk

Women’s Business Organisations and Development

Uppdaterad: 23 maj 2014

Att kvinnor aktivt deltar i ekonomin är "smart ekonomi". Det gynnar också hushållet eftersom kvinnors inkomster i högre grad fokuserar på familjemedlemmarnas välfärd. Den 28 augusti gästas Sida av flera framgångsrika representanter för kvinnligt företagande.

Women’s participation in the economy is ‘smart economics’. It also benefits the household with women’s income often focused on family members’ welfare. Which challenges exist for women running small businesses in low and middle income countries? What role can women’s business organisations play in developing female entrepreneurship? What resources are needed to scale up approaches and reach sustainability?

Chamber Trade Sweden, in collaboration with Sida, invites you to a seminar with guest speakers leading initiatives for women entrepreneurs from around the world and an expert panel discussion.

Date: Tuesday 28th August, 2012
Time: 13.30 – 17.00
Place: Hörsalen, Sida, Valhallavägen 199, Stockholm
