As the world continues to cope with the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the crisis will have an ongoing impact on progress towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In response, a Women Enterprise Recovery Fund has been launched. The aim is promoting and upscaling digital solutions for enhancing women’s enterprise growth and resilience. The Fund will provide up to US $50,000 in co-funding, along with technical assistance. Applicants to the Fund can be based anywhere globally, but the project implementation and solution must target women enterprises in one or more of the following countries: Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal and Viet Nam.
The fund is an initiative of the United Nations ESCAP and the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), with support from FMO, the Government of Canada, Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Visa. Learn more or submit your application today!
