bgmea-skillsRubana Huq, President of BGMEA, said BGMEA aims at rescuing women workers to help them contribute to the industry, with the goal of discussing a virtual program on ‘Women Power: the Force Multiplier.’ Huq invited numerous institutions to distribute instruction to the vast number of women employees during the American Chamber of Commerce seminar in Bangladesh (AmCham).

The CFO and Director PRAN-RFL Group Chief Financial Officer Uzma Chowdhury said that while the women’s entrepreneurship scenario in Bangladesh was making progress, there were problems with the access to funds for those women entrepreneurs due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Roughly 80% of women’s companies were engaged in the pandemic as the rest are cottage, micro, small and medium enterprises, added Syed Ershad Ahmed, Chief Executive Officer of AmCham. Till date, many female entrepreneurs have not been able to avail loans from the government-sponsored stimulus packages, he said.
