Supporting Women Entrepreneurs

The MUCEC Women’s Center in Colón, Panama seeks to foster entrepreneurial skills in women through annual training workshops on business management, micro enterprise and cooperative and resource management. Through this project MUCEC reached over 100 victims of domestic violence and offered them social support, a safe space, and classes in self-esteem, leadership, life plan development, assertive communication, sexuality, and nutrition. In addition, MUCEC offered once-weekly night classes in sewing and tailoring so as to provide women with an economic skill and better ensure that women are able to support themselves and be removed from situations of domestic violence.
