BELIZEAN BUSINESSWOMEN RECEIVE BUSINESS LEADERSHIP TRAINING AS PART OF THE PREFEM PROJECT
January 23, 2023. As part of The Promotion of Women’s Entrepreneurship (PREFEM) Project II, business advisors from BELTRAIDE, the Department of Youth Services, and Promoting Empowerment Through Awareness for Lesbian/Bisexual Women (PETAL) participated in a hybrid, train of trainers, Business Leadership Training, from December to January 2023.
The main objective was to provide business advisors with knowledge to improve the skills and capacities of female-owned Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in business leadership, with an emphasis on gender equality, human rights, and environmental sustainability.
The program was then replicated in Belize with 12 female-owned MSMEs who were trained between January 17-21, 2023 on leadership skills and how to incorporate innovation and development for business growth.
The PREFEM project is led by the Regional Center for Promotion of Micro and Small Enterprises in Central America (CENPROMYPE) and financed by the Duchess of Luxembourg.
