ChaowaPawa, iDE Bangladesh signs  accord to onboard 200 rural women SMEs on E-commerce Platform

ChaowaPawa, a fast-growing E-Commerce platform and International Development Enterprises in Bangladesh (iDE Bangladesh), organised a collaboration agreement signing ceremony under the Women’s Economic Empowerment through Strengthening Systems (WEESMS) Programme at the iDE Bangladesh Office, Dhaka, says  a press release.

iDE Bangladesh’s WEESMS programme is funded by the Embassy of Sweden, which aims to create market-led opportunities for rural women small and medium enterprises (SMEs) by building business skills, exploring new market channels, creating access to affordable financial products and services. The programme supports over 500 women-led/owned and women-oriented SMEs primarily in Jute Diversified Products and Home Textiles in Rangpur and Khulna divisions.

The objective of this collaboration is to empower rural women entrepreneurs with ChaowaPawa’s e-commerce platform to showcase their products to a wider audience, expand their market access, and leverage their business capacity to increase their sales.

Also, ChaowaPawa will have access to the network of rural women entrepreneurs onto their platform and create a pathway to a largely untapped market. 

Under this agreement, ChaowaPawa will initially onboard over 200 Women SMEs from nine Upazila of six districts under Khulna and Rangpur division on its online platform that will allow them to showcase their products nationwide resulting in increased sales.  Forkhan, the CEO of ChaowaPawa said, “This collaboration agreement is a milestone for ChaowaPawa towards its vision of an inclusive market for all that will help women economic empowerment and bring about a positive social change in the rural communities”. Amin, DCD of iDE Bangladesh, added “At iDE we are constantly looking for innovative ideas to support rural entrepreneurs with the wider markets. This collaboration will be a new frontier for WEESMS rural women SMEs who, with the aid of such private-sector partnerships, are gradually adapting to changing market dynamics and moving towards unconventional means of generating sales.”
