About the Program

Recognizing the importance of closing economic gender gaps, the Government of Lebanon and the World Bank Group have therefore launched the Mashreq Gender Facility (MGF) in 2019 in collaboration with the Governments of Iraq and Jordan and with support from Canada and Norway. The MGF aims support government-led efforts, country level priorities and strategic regional activities that address constraints to and improve women’s access to economic opportunities.

Under this initiative, the World Bank Group has partnered with Berytech and the Lebanese League for Women in Business (LLWB) to provide capacity building in times of crisis for women who want to grow their businesses and enhance their business model, marketing, financing, and networking opportunities, as well as learn how to be resilient in the face of crisis. A key component to be addressed will be on identifying links with financial institutions and programs and identify sources of funding. Berytech and LLWB will provide customized trainings in addition to mentorship sessions to participating trainers and women-led businesses. Read more.
