“Globally, 50 million Small & Medium Business (SMB) have pages on Facebook, and the number of new women-owned SMB Pages on Facebook has increased approximately four-fold, nearly doubling in the past year. Through SheMeansBusiness and the support of our partner’s initiatives, like PITB’s Herself, we want to shine a light on the women who start or run small businesses in Pakistan. And empower them to do more – so that their families, their communities and ultimately the Pakistan economy will benefit.”

Dr. Umar Saif, Chairman at PITB added:
“We are excited to team up with Facebook to encourage entrepreneurship and increase opportunities in flexible working as part of our commitment to support #SheMeansBusiness. In Pakistan, women-owned enterprises represent an insubstantial portion of existing SMEs. At PITB-Plan9, only 14% of start-up companies are co-founded by women. By collaborating with Facebook, we hope to be successful in further engaging women in the workforce and achieving more equal participation in the economy. ”
Nabeel A. Qadeer, Director Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Development at PITB also added,
“PITB’s Herself and Facbook’s She Means Business both share like-minded goals – celebrating, inspiring and empowering women entrepreneurs. Together, we will work to build training programs and resources that will help reach and resonate with women in Pakistan. With this partnership, we would like to spread out the spirit of entrepreneurship to all women in Pakistan to be financially independent.”
