Project Description
The research conducted under this Technical Cooperation (TC) will generate relevant knowledge that will be useful to improve women's empowerment, labor market outcomes, and their income-generating capacity in Latin America and the Caribbean. In particular, this TC will look at the effect of providing training on soft-skills on the occupational choices and income of female microentrepreneurs. This project is particularly relevant for the Bank's efforts to monitor women's empowerment in the region, which is an indicator of intermediate results in the IDB Corporate Results Framework. The knowledge generated under this TC will also contribute to the development of future Bank's operations that aim at supporting Latin American and Caribbean governments in their initiatives to promote micro and small enterprises growth and productivity enhancements in the sector.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
