Our workshop on women’s entrepreneurship and social business models brought together 20 women of all ages, from both urban and rural backgrounds in Kosovo.

Training was delivered by Bistra Kumbaroska, cofounder of the Social Impact Lab Skopje and Scaling and Partnership Manager at Social Impact Award in Vienna, and by Shkelzen Merku from Yunus Social Business.
