With its innovative business skills training course, based on identified needs, The Asia Foundation offers entrepreneurship training for migrant women. The trainees are supported as they exercise the skills they have learned and acquire experience managing a real business by taking part in apprenticeships.

In addition the program provides individual business mentoring services to migrant women entrepreneurs who have launched new businesses, with a focus on the application of skills and tools, and the development of practical solutions for business issues.
