May 20, 2020: The 'Entrepreneurship Skills' training was held with the beneficiaries of the 'Start-up' grant scheme within the 'WOMEN' project supported by @GIZKosova, implemented by Kosova Women 4 Women. Participants in this training had the opportunity to increase their capacity around the development, role, skills and importance of entrepreneurship and being an entrepreneur.
In Kosovo, women make up only 9% of individual entrepreneurs and only 13% of business owners are women. Of these businesses, 99.9% of them are micro enterprises with nine employees or less, while only 3% of loans are given to women. In terms of business environment, Kosovo has the lowest score of "entrepreneurial learning, women entrepreneurship and enterprise skills".
Through these trainings and the provision of financial support, we try to increase individual capacities as well as the number of women entrepreneurs.
