The purpose of the three-day workshop was to draft a document which will be ready for municipal authorities’ approval. This document reflects the assessments and needs of small businesses in the region. 

Participants were relevant local actors, such as NGOs and local small business owners, who have influence and can contribute to this policy, which will effect the well-being of women and young women entrepreneurs.
