Empowerment - Cabo Verde
In Cape Verde, although we do not yet have specific institutions to support women's entrepreneurship, the government has specific solutions that are reflected in the different public institutions designed to meet the needs of promoting women's entrepreneurship . Non-governmental organizations and private support and promotion institutions have also played an important role in this regard.
