CAPRI Investigates the Barriers to Women’s Entrepreneurship

Obstacles to women’s entrepreneurship is a problem that is not peculiar to Jamaica; it hinders development on an international scale. Jamaica is deemed to be having the highest proportion of women managers in the world but there are proportionately far fewer women entrepreneurs. A deep understanding of this issue will provide best approaches and support for women’s entrepreneurship.

CAPRI in partnership with the European Union, with Ms. Mikiela Gonzales as the Lead Researcher, is undertaking a study which examines the barriers to entrepreneurship that Jamaican women face, and to offer relevant policy solutions to remove those barriers.
