Gendered Voices - Focus on Women MSME Entrepreneurs in Seychelles

December 5, 2022

This edition of the UNDP Gendered Voices Newsletter shares the stories of women engaged in Micro-, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) in Seychelles. An insight into the experiences of Dr Silvana Bisogni Bonne, Ms Claudette Albert, Ms Gilberte Gendron and Ms Ingrid Sauer, illustrate the barriers faced by female entrepreneurs on the archipelago islands where MSMEs represent over 90% of all firms and provide 41% of all jobs. This edition also sheds light on the forms of resilience and adaptation of women in MSMEs to keep a positive momentum and succeed in their respective fields, which include the production of Coco de Mer value-added products, sustainable farming, honey-making, and the manufacture of chemical-free body care products.
