The aim of the project was to empower female-led business associations by assigning CESO Volunteer Advisors who intensively worked with them to strengthen their organizational capacities. Namely, three Volunteer Advisors provided technical assistance to Macedonian female-led associations, working in the sphere of advocacy for female entrepreneurship, gender equality and empowerment of women by providing increased opportunities for employment. The Advisors focused on helping the organizations improve their services for their members and guiding them how to handle their needs and requests, in order to build stronger female entrepreneurs’ community.
