The funds will be up to 350,000 pesos per project
The Social Development and Gender Unit of the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mining (MIEM) launched the 2023 call for the 8M Women Entrepreneurs non-reimbursable fund. As indicated by its manager, Patricia Romero.
The call is aimed at women and trans women with companies established at least one year old. The total support will reach 2,000,000 pesos.
Micro, small or medium-sized enterprises (MIPYMES), cooperatives, limited liability companies (SRL) and public limited companies can be submitted to the call.
The projects must contain innovative elements for companies that involve positive transformations that affect their competitiveness. The support may be used to improve or acquire hardware, softwaremachinery or equipment installation, among other relevant aspects for the operation of these companies.
“This call means that companies led by women are strengthened and can generate other resources and tools to develop and grow,” Romero emphasized.
He explained that the registration period will end on July 5 and that the characteristics and modalities are available at the agency page.
On the other hand, he said that for this year a project guide was made to contribute to the interested parties in the drafting of the proposals. In this sense, he specified that the MIEM periodically publishes the stories of the businesswomen from previous editions on its site.
In addition, it is planned to hold a workshop on June 6, in virtual mode, to answer questions and doubts. The registration to that instance will be through the mail: [email protected]. This way you can also receive information regarding the call.
