One Size Does Not Fit All: Individualizing Women’s Entrepreneurship
Women entrepreneurs in clean cooking are not a homogeneous group. As such, financing, business support, and technical assistance must be tailored to meet their unique sizes and stages of business growth, whether new micro-enterprises seeking to break even or commercial SMEs seeking to scale and increase investments. This session will spotlight women entrepreneurs across the sector, from micro-enterprise to SMEs and beyond, and will consist of an open discussion around what type of tailored financing, business, and technical support is needed at each stage of women’s entrepreneurship. Curating this space will serve to individualize and enhance the visibility of women entrepreneurs and create a platform for them to share their unique experiences, exchange ideas, and reflect on the type of tailored support they are in need of to enhance business growth.
