What do we do? Appalachian Women Entrepreneurs (AWE)
December 18, 2011
HandMade’s Appalachian Women Entrepreneurs program serves women who are creatively fashioning their livelihoods through small, craft-related businesses in rural areas of Western North Carolina. HandMade has organized women’s business networks in communities throughout the area to connect these entrepreneurs with each other and with resources and markets. These networks provide access to business support services, from business plan development to joint marketing projects, that the women might not be able to locate, afford, or access individually.
