Belarusian women can receive EU support for business initiatives

Belarus women's business initiatives can be supported financially. The corresponding loan agreement was signed in Minsk on July 14. Various European institutions are ready to invest about $10 million in the development of small and medium-sized businesses.

The program will help women participate more actively in the economic life of the country. 

Thus Belarus has joined the large-scale project for the countries of the Eastern Partnership. Its total financial basis is estimated at $50 million.

Andrea Victorin, head of the European Union delegation to the Republic of Belarus:
I visited Belarus earlier too. And I think that women are a kind of foundation of your country. It is important to give them an opportunity to realize themselves, to take a leading position. I hope this program will be used by women not only in Minsk but also in other regions.
