The Ministry of Women’s Affairs, Gender and Community Development says it is implementing policies that promote production among women.
This comes as the ministry engages women in various businesses especially those which require value addition.
Women’s Affairs, Gender and Community Development Minister, Cde Sithembiso Nyoni met with a number of businesswomen in Harare and challenged them to take up better opportunities, and assured them of government support.
Women Alliance of Business Associations in Zimbabwe chair, Ms Hilda Makamure said they have partnered with some financiers to ensure women access funding.
Women have been concentrating on small businesses thereby disadvantaging themselves in terms of growth.
However, the ministry is encouraging them to get their equal share on the market.
