Country Chapters

AWEP participants often form country chapters in effort to build on the existing business networks between women entrepreneurs, to provide business and leadership trainings, and to advocate for improved national and regional trade policies in Africa. AWEP chapters are established and managed by AWEP participants and alumnae and are therefore tailored specifically to their national context.

AWEP Chapters exist in the following countries:
Angola Kenya Rwanda
Cameroon Liberia Seychelles
Ethiopia Malawi Tanzania
Ghana Namibia Uganda
Guinea Nigeria Zambia

AWEP Chapters anticipated to launch in 2013

Cote d’Ivoire Mozambique
The Gambia Namibia
Mauritania Niger
Mauritius Zimbabwe

AWEP women in chapters and other participants own and manage businesses in a variety of sectors, including agriculture, agribusiness, consulting, cosmetics, fashion design, food processing, handicrafts, hospitality, management, and retail.
