Women in Senegal to benefit from new opportunities in the energy market

GVEP International and SEM Fund are joining forces to increase women’s participation in the energy market in Senegal and make sustainable energy available to the poorest communities.

Over the next three years, 250 women-run micro and small enterprises in the regions of Tambacounda and Kedougou in eastern Senegal will receive tailored mentoring, business and financial support to expand access to energy products and services, and to increase their productivity.

The project receives funding from ENERGIA, the International Network on Gender and Sustainable Energy
