The first year in Offenbach
Getting started, changing careers or becoming self-employed – Social Business Women in Offenbach went off to a successful start
In the first year after its launch, 240 women used the only nationwide individual counselling and support service offered by women for women. So far, 36 women have been helped back into their job. Support was provided to 81 start-up businesses. Two of them received a micro-credit by Social Business Women. This programme is a significant step towards empowering women to lead independent lives in Germany. Since the programme started, many significant insights have been gained with respect to the careers and lives particularly of women in difficult situations, as became manifest during a press conference on 7 October 2015.
