Fatima Jinnah Women University (FJWU) in collaboration with Higher Education Commissioner (HEC) on Tuesday organized a post training session on “Creating and Strengthening Awareness of Financial Linkages among Young Women Entrepreneurs of Rural Areas of Rawalpindi District” under Social Integration outreach program.
Deputy General Manager, Women Entrepreneurship Development Cell, (WEDC) Tania Buttar was guest speaker on the occasion.
She briefed the students and entrepreneurs about SMEDA, a public sector organization working under Ministry of Industries and Production.
The session was organized to identify key problems and challenges being faced and perceived by young women entrepreneurs for getting seed money to start their business.
The project is helpful to empower and strengthen the women entrepreneurs by providing them in-depth information on financial aspects of a business especially gaining access to the money (seed capital) that may enable the women entrepreneurs to play a vital role in the development of the country’s economy.
