Wraping up the project with great success!

By Sierra James | Project Consultant

Over the last several months, as part of this project Ba Futuru has been supporting women entrepreneurs on the small remote island of Atauro by helping them to promote their local products and business through creating an inspirational film about their work. 

Ba Futuru has also helped local women on Atauro to develop their business ideas for the business plan competition, make progress on their action plans, and through the business competition, many women were able to get gain assets to improve their small businesses. 

On December 9th and 10th Ba Futuru held the National Women's Innovative Project Forum bringing together 46 women entrepreneurs from both Bobonaro and Atauro. This forum also included His Excellency SECoop, Sr. Elizario Ferreira, and representatives from AMETL, IADE, Casa Vida and SEII.

The forum was an important empowerment opportunity for the women involved to continue to grow their skills and share the innovation with one another.

Thanks again for your support!
