Personal and Business Stories of Women and Youth Entrepreneurs: This booklet is a compilation of stories from selected women and youth who participated in the project and found enrichment and empowerment through entrepreneurship. The stories are presented by sector and introduced with a short overview of each sector’s approach. These stories highlight the women’s and youth’s experiences and the financial and social constraints faced along their entrepreneurial journey. We hope that these stories illustrate the power of capacity building and market linkages to bolster the potential of women and youth in enacting change within their communities and contributing to their country’s economy.
