CNVP Promoting Women Entrepreneurship in Rural Areas

27 May, 2020


CNVP Kosovo has started to implement a project about “Capacity Building of Women Entrepreneurs in vegetable and medical plants production & processing in Kosovo”.

The duration of the project covers the period from March 2020 to August 2021. 
Project activities include establishing an informal network of rural women entrepreneurs and building their capacities to manage their businesses more sustainably. The project is expected to support the economic independence of rural women, and create more gender equality in rural and agriculture sectors. The institutional partners associated with the project include two municipalities (Rahovec and Prizren). 
The objective of the Programme is to strengthen the capacity of rural women entrepreneurs in production as well as the processing of vegetables and MAPs. The specific target of the programme is to reach out at least 120 women rural entrepreneurs (members of cooperatives, non-formal groups, and individual producers) active in the above mention sectors. The capacity building programme is expected to lead to better business management, improve productivity or production levels, opening new jobs for women and increasing their sales and incomes.
This project is funded by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency and commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and being implemented by CNVP Kosovo
