Survey ReportsFY2017:Growing Women's Entrepreneurship through ICT in Southeast Asia
Year of Publication
This report summarises analyses on the state and challenges of the use of Information Communication and Technologies (ICT) in supporting women entrepreneurs in Southeast Asia. In many countries, it is more difficult for women to find formal employment compared with men. Starting a business is often the only way for women to improve their financial situation and become self-sufficient but major barriers remain in the form of social and religious customs, difficulty in securing funds, and lack of entrepreneurial skills. This report has been compiled from interviews with local people, which inform the numerous proposals on how foundations and policy makers can be more supportive of women's entrepreneurship.
