Entrepreneurs ASPIRE


In an effort to address the high level of unemployment of female Syrian refugees, we will develop and pilot test a microfinance intervention to train refugee women in entrepreneurship skills and money management. Using existing successful, evidence-based programs from our previous research in other resource-constrained settings, we will engage Syrian refugee women in microfinance training to increase their employability and income. The microfinance project will be designed and delivered in collaboration with business communities in Amman, Jordan and Istanbul, Turkey. 

This study is currently under development.
