Impact: What is the impact of the work to date?
With only 10% of formal women entrepreneurs in Morocco, the remaining activities held by women are mostly informal or unpaid work.
SPATULA aims to improve the conditions of women entrepreneurs in Morocco by
taking on the financial burden of opening and operating a shared use commercial kitchen in order to help them have a fixed cost on which to base their business plans (rates by month or by hour, full or part time rates) and established businesses expand.
Barriers: What barriers might hinder the success of your project and how do you plan to overcome them?
- people do not know to to run their businesses,
- Clients paying on time.
Full Impact Potential: What are the main spread strategies moving forward? (Please consider geographic spread, policy reform, and independent replication/adoption of the idea or other mechanisms.)
One main result is to have helped, by 2020, at least 3 women to own their own kitchen and run a sustainable culinary business with increasing business opportunities overseas.
Another result is to have created the first Moroccan Incubated Women Entrepreneur Network “I-WEN”.
I also intend, in the long term, to create other incubators related to other domain activities, such us design and decoration, fashion and handcraft products, etc...
