Libyan Businesswomen: Reality and Prospects

20.05.2020 / Created by JCSD

Entrepreneurship and small and medium business are considered to be an important, albeit untapped, source of economic growth in Libya. However, the issue of women’s economic leadership remains largely neglected in society in general, and in economic policies in particular. In recent years, a great number of women in Libya have set up their own businesses. Turning them into successful projects has not been an easy task for these women: they have had to face many difficulties and overcome a series of barriers. They have had to confront discrimination and resist the scepticism of Libyan society, having to make greater efforts than men to prove their credibility.

This report analyses the reality of women-owned business in order to understand the challenges faced by women entrepreneurs in Libya today. The report also offers them recommendations on how to make the most of their projects.
