Uzbekistan Women in Business

We provided an assessment of the SME sector in Uzbekistan.

The objective of this study was to provide an assessment of the SME sector in Uzbekistan, through a careful analysis of the latest trends in the development of the Uzbek business environment and the legal framework relevant for SMEs in general and women-led SMEs in particular.  The assessment provided the European Development Bank an identification of key constraints faced by each sub-segment of SMEs and women-led SMEs in accessing finance, while also including recommendations on possible measures to address the supply and demand side challenges faced by SMEs and women-led SMEs.
