A call has been made for women to venture into entrepreneurial projects that can empower them.

The call came out during a grassroots baking and entrepreneurial development certificate handover ceremony in the capital today.

70 women were handed with certificates in baking and entrepreneurial development at a colourful event held in the capital.

The women said the initiative has given them a financial muscle.

National Federation of Grassroots Women’s Clubs Zimbabwe coordinator Thelma Chirenje encouraged the women to venture into various craftsmanship projects.

The women are also being empowered in other disciplines including cosmetics, motor mechanics, building and crocheting among others.
