Recently, on 31th May 2019, The People’s Committee of Son La province has officially approved the proposal of “Support Women Start-ups and Entrepreneurs in Son La” project of Women’s Initiative for Start-ups and Entrepreneurship (WISE). The project is part of GREAT Project “Gender Responsive Equitable Agriculture and Tourisme” in Lao Cai and Son La provinces (funded by Australian Aid), which helps to enhance the lives of women, their families and local communities in north-west Vietnam and will also contribute to higher productivity and economic growth in the region.
With the experience and background in implementing various incubation and acceleration programs, an international network of mentoring, investing and market connecting, with main focus on women, this project aims to enhance the leadership of women, increase their income and create more job for women in Son La, in particular for ethnic minority women. Therefore, the ecosystem supporting women in Moc Chau and Van Ho districts will be developed.
The project will be implemented officially from now to end of September 2021.
