DescriptionThe woman-in-career is still a distant vision in our society as the role and participation of women in all sectors, especially in the economy, is very poor. SIFE UT in collaboration with the Professional and Business Women Association (ShGPA), decided to work closely with 72 girls and women in the artisan sector in order to sustain the SMEs owned by women and increase the role of women is society. Activities consist in training in 5 different cities (Shkodra, Kruja, Tirana, Prishtina and Gjakova) on how to run a business, correct client communication, management techniques and practices and financial management. Further, their businesses and products shall be promoted: web page that includes information of 200 businesses owned by women.  SIFE UT is also helping the association to secure funding in order to design and print a calendar that will include the contact details and product information of 100 artisan businesses owned by women from all over Albania and Kosovo. Finally a market should be found for these women.  For this point, SIFE UT in collaboration with SIFE Graceland, USA hosted the products of Albanian artisan women in an international web page in order to improve their international exposure and, for the first time ever, allow online purchases. SIFE UT made possible the participation of these women in a national fair as well.
