Women have always had a strong instinct for enterprise and always had the issues of 'gender' influence their choices, often as a result of external sources, such as family or patriarchy. Enterprising Female was borne out of the desire to impact women empowerment positively, in my own small way. Always with the 'teach to catch a fish, rather than give a fish' approach.
Its always refreshing to meet women from around the world, of different cultural and environmental dynamics and challenges, doing the same. It was a pleasure to meet and share with some very competent , able and motivated women driving the agenda for women's empowerment through business start - up and growth in The Gambia. It was particularly a pleasure for me, to be able to share ideas, concepts, programmes and funding/sponsorship suggestions, to help bring their vision to fruition. Well done Gambian women, I say.
