The Republic of China on Taiwan and the Government of St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG ) last Thursday, February 18, signed an agreement to fund the Women’s Empowerment Initiative.
The initiative seeks to help women with small enterprises to develop their skills and product lines. They would be aided with business sessions ranging from product development to marketing through the Centre for Enterprise Development. At the end of the training, business owners will receive grants to help fund their businesses.
At the signing ceremony held at the Ministry of Finance, Taiwan’s Ambassador to SVG, Peter Sga-Li Lan expressed his pleasure at partnering in this venture and continuing to support programmes which would contribute to the development of women.
Minister of Finance, Camillo Gonsalves encouraged all female entrepreneurs whether they have start-up businesses or
are seeking to expand their businesses, to take advantage of the programme.
The project runs from March to June 2022 and application forms are available at the Centre for Enterprise Development (CED).
