Centre to give boost to women business owners
THE Myanmar Women Entrepreneurs Association will launch its Women Entrepreneurship Development Center (WEDC) this month, with free business training and mentoring opportunities for female business owners.
According to a management at the association, the new business centre will open on Shwedagon Pagoda road in Dagon township later this month, although the exact date is still to be confirmed.
Weekly educational workshops and networking sessions for interested entrepreneurs will be held for free over the next three months, the statement reads.
“We invite women who want to start a business can join our center,” said Daw Khin Lay, vice president of Myanmar Women Entrepreneur’s Association.
The association is not in a position to provide business funding, but, after three months of workshops, will be connecting perspective business owners who have continued with the program to banks for potential loan opportunities, said Daw Hnin Wai, general secretary at the Myanmar Women Entrepreneur’s Association.
