Pooling resource to make its own business successful in Mediterranean area
All around the world, economic inequalities between women and men are still very strong. Yet, many studies explain the importance of women’s status and the role they have to play for developing an equal and inclusive society.
Working for more than 10 years with our Mediterranean partners (Tunisia, Morocco and Egypt), we helped them implement several projects aiming at improving the status of women through their social and economic integration. Many women already benefit from trainings and/or create their own income-generating activity.
With our partners, we are now focusing on the formalization of those micro-companies thanks to the implementation of collective enterprises. The entrepreneurs are then able to share resources and skills, ensure the sustainability of their activities and benefit from social advantages such as social security. As the entrepreneurs share skills and pool resource, they can better ensure the sustainability of their business and benefit from social care. Meanwhile, an action-research approach will contribute to promoting the efficiency and relevance of the micro-companies’ supporting process to public authorities.
