    Community and mentorship. Women are by nature cautious beings so having people around who can give the push and the togetherness to pursue would really help.

    Women need to be educated, through seminars and workshops on internatoional trade. There are alot if oppirtunities available for wonen to trade however tgey need to be aware and take advantage of these opportunities. For example Common Market of Eastern and Southern Africa(COMESA) which is a freetrade zone for 22 member states. This is a goid opportunity for women to go and gain expisure and market their products abd gain access to buyers from several countries. However as i mentioned earlier it starts by educating the women so that they are aware of the opportunities available to them and how they can take full advantage of them.

    Hello Winny, I think support n business, by buying from them, being taught about branding their products, being well articulate and use of technology will go along way.

    1. Women should be educated in the trade in which they want to enter and excel. As women, we must be stellar to be noticed so working harder is a must. 2. Women should advocate for other women in their trade. We have to support one another. 3. Policy must not only be created but enforced with incentives for any organisation that supports women.
