Enchaning women's entreprenurship in the Arab States

In Yemen, in collaboration with the Small Micro Enterprise Promotion Service, a women-specific business training package entitled: “Women Business Owners’ Training” was developed based on ILO material in 2010 and 25 women trainers were trained on the delivery of the material in February 2011.
