Changing Lives: promoting female entrepreneurship in Kosovo

We are boosting female women’s entrepreneurship in Kosovo by providing finance and business advice to a Restaurant Oda, owned by Ilirjana Gafurri.

The support falls under the EBRD Women in Business (WIB) programme aimed at empowering women who lead or own small businesses and funded by Luxembourg.

The restaurant received a €50,000 loan through the local partner bank TEB to extend its servicing capabilities.

Energising small and medium-sized enterprises, such as Restaurant Oda, is in line with a wider strategy the EBRD is implementing across its regions:  to strengthen the resilience of domestic economies as well as enhancing competitiveness of the private sector by promoting greater economic and social inclusion.
