Bassima Hakkaoui, minister of solidarity, women, family and social development
Moroccan women only make up a “very modest” ten per cent of entrepreneurs in the country, a minister for women said today.
Bassima Hakkaoui, minister of solidarity, women, family and social development, said: “The ministry wants to empower women in an area where they have seen modest influence, female entrepreneurs in Morocco are self-reliant and don’t enjoy what women in other fields benefit from.”
She explained that “the field of entrepreneurship is a desert where men grow without women, until we reached a level we cannot be proud of.”
“We have a security fund to support women’s entrepreneurship, which has provided 236 women with loans amounted to 81 million dirhams ($8 million).”
