Beneficiaries are women who have business ideas and want to own and operate their own businesses.
Le Van Nghia, deputy chairman of the province’s People’s Committee, said the project was designed to spark creativity among women and meet the State targets for enterprise development and gender equality in business fields.
The province aims to support 200 female startup projects by 2025, with five cooperatives managed by women.
The project is being carried out by the provincial Women’s Union, with total investment of VND3.5 billion from the State budget.
Nguyen Thi Kim Phuong, chairwoman of the union, said the union had annually organised a day to offer consultation and training to women on legal issues, branding, and other business topics.
The project’s two stages are from 2018 to 2020, and from 2020 to 2025.
Every year, the province will work with agencies to create plans and evaluate the progress of the project.
