Promoting women’s economic empowerment through business trainings

This evidence review explores the effectiveness of business training programs in promoting women’s economic empowerment, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. By synthesizing various studies, the review assesses the impact of such programs on women’s business skills, earnings, and entrepreneurial activities. Findings indicate that while business training generally enhances business practices, its effects on tangible business outcomes like sales, revenues, or profits are mixed, with notably lesser benefits for female entrepreneurs due to persistent gender-based barriers.
