Case Studies from the Asian Development Bank and The Asia Foundation

As two organizations with a history of supporting women entrepreneurs in Asia, The Asia Foundation and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) have published this report to leverage both organizations’ complementary areas of expertise to make evidence-based policy and program recommendations for strengthening support for women entrepreneurs. The new report is comprised of three parts. The first focuses on the key barriers that women in Asia and the Pacific face when trying to establish or grow a business; the second presents case studies of projects supported by the ADB and The Asia Foundation in various countries throughout the region; and the third proposes eight areas for further research on women’s entrepreneurship.
