МК IWA 34:2022 - Women's entrepreneurship

This document establishes a set of common definitions related to women's entrepreneurship, such as those for women-owned businesses and women-led businesses. This document also defines women-led associations and women-led informal enterprises.

These definitions can be used, for example, in women's economic empowerment programs (such as public procurement and trade programs) and to collect internationally comparable data on women's entrepreneurship (including the impact on local and national economies).

This document also provides criteria for assessing important factors related to these definitions, such as ownership, management and control, but also how to handle investment allocations.
