This project builds on the pilot initiative funded by the Spanish Fund aimed at Empowering Women Entrepreneurs in Arequipa. The project at hand integrates two new elements: i) the capacity building of Peruvian technical institutions to ensure the sustainability of the approach beyond the lifecycle of the project; ii) a larger geographical coverage to reach a higher critical mass of WBEs in three regions (Arequipa, Huancayo and Puno).
