|Project Purpose & Description||
As it is understood, women are one of the groups most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the findings of the Indonesian Ministry of Child and Women's Protection, more than 50% of MSME actors are women. Meanwhile, according to the Bank Indonesia (BI) Survey in June 2020, as many as 72.6% of MSME players experienced a decline in sales, difficulty in raw materials, and difficulty in capital during the pandemic.
The discussion will involve women entrepreneurs who will discuss how women develop their businesses, take advantage of new demand along with changes in people's behavior, including being more active in using digital platforms as a step to do business in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to disseminating the existence of FEALAC to Indonesian women entrepreneurs, this activity is expected to be able to help young women entrepreneurs to maintain and develop their businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the end, this activity is also expected to encourage international cooperation among FEALAC member countries so that they can consistently support women entrepreneurship.
