Needs Assessment of Women-Owned Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in Vietnam


The study Needs Assessment of Women-owned Small and Medium-sized enterprises in Vietnam was conducted by VWEC from September 2017 to April 2018 with financial and technical support from The Asia Foundation and MBI. This study assesses the need for support of women-owned small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Vietnam. Specifically, the report explores the obstacles faced by women-owned SMEs, their need for support including supporting services, method of support, and implementation of support to women-owned enterprises. The empirical results also provide evidences for proposing and developing women-owned SME support policies and advocating for relevant policies in line with the SME Support Law. Business supporting services are very broad, but this study focuses specifically on the need for support of women-owned SMEs in three important service groups stipulated in the SME Support Law.
