Bank Eskhata Supports Women Entrepreneurship!

Women entrepreneurship is growing rapidly. Women are looking for more and more opportunities to grow their businesses. Today, thanks to new technologies, they have many new, innovative ways to promote their business. For example, the implementation of digital technology has become an important business trend in order to keep up with the times in the market. On May 26, 2023 the conference “Business Digitalisation and Development of Women Entrepreneurship in Tajikistan” was held at the Training Centre of the National Bank of Tajikistan in Guliston.
