Roundtable with Women Entrepreneurs in Cameroon
Goal of Roundtable
The main goal of this workshop is to understand the most pressing problems faced by women small business owners and entrepreneurs in Cameroon. Understanding these challenges will allow SBEC to better craft home-grown solutions to assist women business owners stabilize and grow their businesses.
The workshop will allow us to understand the circumstances under which women business owners will be willing to become part of the SBEC Network and what the SBEC Network could provide that Common Initiative Groups do not currently provide. Therefore, the workshop will fully flesh out their expectations of SBEC.

- Beauty shops
