Improving opportunities for women's self-employment

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.
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.
