The WEESMS programme is a five-year initiative funded by the Embassy of Sweden, designed to increase women’s participation in the labour market in rural and peri-urban Bangladesh, with a significant focus on reducing gender inequality in the country’s entrepreneurship ecosystem. It aims to promote women’s entrepreneurship and strengthen the enabling environment for women to access formal and informal productive employment opportunities.
