Starting your own enterprise course

At Assadaqaat Community Finance (ACF), we inspire women to become the change agents and drivers of economic growth in Wales and beyond. Helping women to start and run their MSMEs (micro, small and medium-sized enterprises) not only empowers women to become financially inclusive and increase their incomes but it also helps in creating jobs, and reducing social and economic inequalities.

businesswomen With a key focus on helping women from the underprivileged BAME communities to access necessary skills, training and finance required for starting their own MSMEs (micro, small and medium enterprises), the ACF ‘Women Entrepreneurship Programme’ aims to facilitate women to build confidence, expand networks and potentially get connected with the domestic, national and international markets.
The ACF ‘Starting your own enterprise’ is a 6-week training course (2 hours a week) designed to help women participants to overcome the key challenges and barriers in bringing their business ideas to a commercial viable reality.
