SheTrades Commonwealth Programme



    The aim of the programme is to increase the participation of women-owned businesses in trade in order to increase economic growth and job creation in Commonwealth countries. With interventions at the beneficiary-, firm-, institutional-, national- and inter-national level, it will:  

    • Address policy change at the national level, making trade-related policies gender responsive;
    • Facilitate new/better linkages with buyers and investors internationally; connecting women to opportunities and facilitating gender sensitive business practice;  
    • Support BSOs and the private sector to strengthen the business environment for women owned businesses;
    • Support BSOs to target women owned business directly to improve capacity; combining face to face training with coaching, mentoring and exposure to buyers.
