The “WOMEN KNOW HOW” campaign aims to present one of the European Union projects dedicated to empowering women. The women featured in the videos share their own business development tips and tell the story of their business creation.

The EU-supported “Women in Business” project assists women-led small and medium enterprises in developing their businesses, contributing to the empowerment of women and economic growth in Armenia. The project also offers training, mentoring, and other support to enable women entrepreneurs to share experiences and learn from each other.

The EU supports businesswomen in Armenia by promoting gender-inclusive policies, providing financial support and training programmes, thereby empowering women entrepreneurs and expanding their participation in economic development.

“Women in Business” project is managed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
