“Within 15 months, we have managed to create an environment where people from the Roma community who are interested in starting a business and those who have an established business can improve their knowledge and skills and develop their business. We have noted that one of the main problems among the Roma community is the low level of economic employment and stability. At the same time, there are a lot of people with entrepreneurial interests, but they do not see the opportunity and they do not know how they organize the implementation of their ideas. That is why we decided to implement an economic project, “added Miglena Mihaylova, project manager.
In front of the media in Blagoevgrad one of the participants in the project – Ivaila Asenova, presented her business plan for a recreation center.
After the official presentation of the results, the project manager gave interviews to the local media.
