The Asia Foundation is asked to expand its support for Mongolia’s women entrepreneurs

MP M.Oyunchimeg meets with the Asia Foundation's Meloney Lindberg

Member of Parliament M.Oyunchimeg received the Asia Foundation’s Country Representative in Mongolia, Meloney Lindberg, to discuss the promotion of the businesses of female entrepreneurs.

MP Oyunchimeg noted that whenever she meets with her electorate, women entrepreneurs always ask her to help them find ways to connect to business networks to sell their products.

She said that they have faced challenges in reaching customers. MP Oyunchimeg asked Lindberg to help women participate in the Women’s Business Center (WBC) project being funded by Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and implemented by the Asia Foundation.

Meloney Lindberg stated that 829 women have taken part in the WBC since it was launched in 2016, and that the  project will be implemented until 2018. She noted that the project’s resources are available to women entrepreneurs who are interested in taking part in the business incubator.

The center helps women entrepreneurs learn how to write a business plan, offers business advice, helps its members improve their marketing skills, and teaches women how to access financial resources.
