Women in Kyrgyzstan forced to work in microbusiness

Due to barriers to entrepreneurship, most women in Kyrgyzstan work in microbusiness. Chairwoman of the Coordinating Council of Demilgiluu Aiymdar Coalition, Ainura Sagynbaeva, announced at a press conference at 24.kg news agency.

According to her, women in the republic lack the support of the state.

«There are a lot of obstacles. If we accepted them and worked on them, the country’s economy would develop. Proof that women face more barriers is the fact that the majority of females work in microbusiness. If these obstacles did not exist, our talented women would move to small, and then to medium and large businesses. Women in the regions are especially hardworking and talented,» said Ainura Sagynbaeva.

It should be noted that Demilgiluu Aiymdar Coalition has developed the National Women’s Entrepreneurship Agenda in Kyrgyzstan. Presentation of the document will take place on March 15 with the participation of the head of the Cabinet of Ministers Akylbek Japarov.
