The project aims to contribute to the improvement of the business climate in the rural areas of the North-Eastern planning region by improving the public services of the local community, strengthening the entrepreneurial skills of young women and creating new businesses. The project will further consider the possible problems and limitations faced by young women in rural areas in order to join the labor market and achieve greater participation in the creation of local policies. In this context, an analysis and recommendations with appropriate proposed measures will be made and we will submit them to the local governments in the North-Eastern planning region. The goal is to contribute to the creation of a favorable business climate in rural areas, which will stimulate the development of women's social entrepreneurship, through greater participation of young women in the formulation of policies.
