In the morning, at the Municipal Theater in Paraguay 1,240, the Municipality of Salta gave a lecture to neighboring beneficiaries of the Job Improvement Program of the Socioproductive Inclusion and Local Development Department of the nation.
During the meeting, organized by the Secretary of State for Women of the Municipality, various topics were offered, developing the useful tools necessary to develop a business and nurture a future family economy.
In this regard, Secretary of State for Women Gabriela Gaspar said: “From the Victims of Domestic Violence Protection Program we manage the Empower Plan for Victims of Gender Based Violence. This has to do with promoting empowerment and economic autonomy. The goal of creating these spaces and generating these resources is to empower women to run their own businesses.”
“From the management of the mayoress, Bettina Romero, we are working hard on the economic autonomy of women. It is also the second year in a row that tools are being made available by the employment office for those who want to work but are unable to do so,” the official concluded.
In the course of the day, the requirements for running a business and the associated advantages were also determined. The importance of having a clear mission, vision and competency, marketing and advertising, and operational and financial structures was identified.
For her part, Nahir Baracat, who gave the lecture on her life experience, said: “I am grateful to the municipality for supporting me after a situation of gender-based violence I went through. I had the opportunity to be selected from the Work Potential Program and thus be able to invest in my own growth. Today I have two businesses because of the good tools I have acquired for care and investing.”
“The purpose of the meeting was to offer advice and strategies from my experience to other women to generate a new business and future growth in the personal and family economy,” concluded Baracat.
Also taking part in the discussion was Laura Martínez, Secretary of State for the Labor Office of the Corporation for Economic Development, Education and Training for the Promotion of Employment.
