Grant to renovate women's textile factory in south central Iraq
A grant from the USAID is aimed at helping to renovate a women's textile factory in south central Iraq. This assistance will improve the factory's work environment, increase production, and provide a venue for training sessions for local women. Over two hundred women from lower income families operate the factory.
Generally speaking, NGOs offer workshops for Iraqi women on economic development, promoting women as business owners and developing networks to support women in their efforts to own and operate businesses.
