Call for Application for International Trade Centre: (Deadline 1 March 2021)
Increasing competiveness and connection to markets for women owned businesses
The International Trade Centre (ITC) SheTrades Rwanda project invites women entrepreneurs and women owned Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in Rwanda to participate in and benefit from the project.
The project offers in-depth capacity building activities to women owned businesses in the coffee and horticulture sectors and business generation activities in local and regional markets. Technical trainings offered to these two sectors will benefit both women owned businesses as well as women that are employed further upstream in farming households.
The project also provides non sector-specific capacity building activities for women owned businesses in other sectors (textile and apparels, tourism and IT&BPO).
Interested women-owned businesses can apply to join the SheTrades Rwanda project before March 2021 through the following link: https://www.sheTrades.online/survey/view.php?id

- Be at least 30% owned, managed and controlled by woma(e)n;

The project welcomes any potential collaboration with supermarkets, hotels, medium/large enterprises benefitting women, financial institutions, Business Support Organizations, cooperatives, farmers’ associations, and private-sector partners.
