DAR ES SALAAM: BUSINESS Registrations and Licensing Agency (BRELA) has set aside a special desk for women who seek to register their small businesses.
The move mainly focuses on amplifying the women empowerment drive across the country.
The Chief Executive Officer of BRELA, Godfrey Nyaisa, said during the closing ceremony of the entrepreneurship week organised by Women Creating Wealth (WCW) held in Dar es Salaam that they want to hasten women’s business registration.
“Our aim is to alleviate the obstacles hindering them from achieving their business objectives while increasing efforts to formalising women firms.
“We strive to provide the necessary tools and knowledge to ensure that women navigate the business landscape with ease and achieve their aspirations,” Mr Nyaisa said over the weekend.
The WCW Country Manager, Ms Anabahati Mlay, said that the seminar was just the beginning of an ongoing commitment to provide platforms for education, empowerment and networking opportunities for women in entrepreneurship.
“Our goal remains steadfast to elevate women in business and ensure they have the resources and knowledge needed to thrive,” she said.
Mosi Hassani, one of the participants of the seminar, said that they have learned a lot, as women. She said the seminar has enabled them to understand best ways to achieve economic independence, particularly for small-scale entrepreneurs.
“Life now revolves around technology, so this seminar has taught us to navigate this current world by using smartphones to broaden our horizons, even conducting businesses beyond our borders, not just within our country,” she said.
