Kenya: Women enrepreneurs

Kenyan blogger Bankekele posts on a recent report highlighting issues around Women Entrepreneurs in Kenya....”.46% of SME’s in Kenya are owned by women who face numerous constraints in establishing and running their business. The goal of the program is to transform women enterprises from being informal and micro-sized, located on inappropriate premises, operating in feminized sectors & and locally restricted markets, and which are under-capitalized, making minimal use of technology – all of which limit their potential for growth. This will be done through tailored financial and other solutions”

    I recently returned from Kenya with 3 other woman and was quite upset that although the women do all the work they are not allowed to be entrepreneurial. How can we help.
