This program will cover various aspects of business, including management, digital marketing, finance, and sustainability. The Company believes that through providing this training, women will have greater opportunities to develop their businesses, increase income, and overall contribute to local economic development.
The first training program has been implemented with a total of 100 female MSME participants from various business fields. This program will be implemented periodically in several cities in the Company's operational areas and will open up opportunities for many women to develop their business potential. Furthermore, in 2024 the Company is expected to have permanent MSME partners who will receive full support from the Company.
