Femprow partnered with Facebook to train 1500 women entrepreneurs under the #SheMeansBusiness Program, with an aim to enhance the volume of economic participation from small women-owned businesses in Pakistan, and to help them effectively market and grow their businesses using Facebook’s family of apps. The project launched on August 4, 2020 with the first weekly training of the initiative.
