Sustaining communities through Market linkage and Entrepreneurial Skill Development Program
Market linkage and entrepreneurial skill development is one of the major thrust areas where women
can attain economic empowerment. Given its importance, VMCSF has extensively developed a program
which would address the women and their economic activity. Over 33 trainings programs have been
conducted and provided market linkage and entrepreneurial skill were sensitized.
VMCSF identified potential women who involved in small and medium scale entrepreneurship to promote
their business activity. Most of VM members are situated in rural areas where rural areas do not
have much exposure about agri and non- agri products pricing and linkage of markets on product wise.
Thus this market linkage program helps these targeted women to have pricing on products and linking
local markets to producers who many times neglected and exploited by middle men.
Entrepreneurship is one of the sustainable ways to support member livelihood activities to provide
proper guidance to member for their development. VMCSF found that empowering women needs special
attention in supporting their economic initiatives to come out from the disadvantaged position.
