Capacity building for women entrepreneurs in Eswatini

Women form the majority of the operators in the informal sector business which is a major contributor to the economy. There is a great need for capacity building focusing on business management and coaching within this sector. Lack of capacity building means women entrepreneurs do not improve their business skills significantly and this could ultimately force them out of business. A number of organizations however are addressing this in Eswatini. Detailed information about these is provided below.
