Improving opportunities for women's self-employment

Context:
Women are increasingly seeking self-employment for the advantages of "being their own boss" and having job flexibility, but often as a response to the lack of job opportunities in the public and private sector resulting from recession and restructuring.
Implementation:
Actions that would improve women's viable self employment are (a) enhancing and facilitating women's access to advice on how to become self-employed, and to credit; and (b) developing an infrastructure supporting the formation and activities of small and medium enterprises.
Problems:
