The program will run in several phases:
First, a call for applications is launched in May 2023 to all Gabonese women entrepreneurs.
After the selection phase of the program’s beneficiaries, the program begins with training sessions on technical subjects and “soft skills” such as writing a business plan or speaking in public. Women entrepreneurs are also trained in entrepreneurial pitching and will receive all the necessary keys to accessing financing.
Then, the beneficiaries are put in touch with a dedicated mentor and are coached on a specific issue to support them in the development of their businesses, with consistency and kindness.
Finally, some of our beneficiaries are selected for roadshows to raise funds.
Throughout the program, women entrepreneurs benefit from visibility on WIA’s social networks.
