Women have excelled in the job market over the past 30 yrs., yet remain dominant in so called feminine jobs, such as teaching & medical care. Women’s unemployment rates are higher than men’s & their salary levels are lower (demo. survey-1991). Moreover, working away from home brings challenges of reconciling jobs w/ home responsibilities. ASPLANDE supports low income women, who are often family leaders, to insert themselves into the workforce by helping them set up businesses.
