Once you are engaged in some kind of commerce we can help you…providing you are willing to move your business to a different scale (and) make your business a part of the national system.”According to Nicholson, the move to undertake the venture was premised on the recognition that there has been an increase in the number of women entrepreneurs who do not have the necessary skills to make their business sustainable or to diversify.

In excess of 50 women were similarly supported then, to the extent that they have expanded their businesses to include other products and services, according to Nicholson.“What we have seen over time is that more and more women are asking for this kind of support and we thought that it might be opportune to help women in general to become sustainable business managers and owners,” Nicholson said.Those formerly trained were provided with guidance in entrepreneurship which saw them being provided with a mentor to support them in the areas of improving their businesses.
