Yes, women can. Is information provision effective in encouraging women to enter more profitable male-dominated sectors?

This project aims at promoting female entrepreneurship in male-dominated sectors in Uganda's main cities (Kampala, Masaka and Jinja). In order to better understand how important information is and how it should be delivered to be effective, we plan to conduct focus group discussions with aspiring female microentrepreneurs to obtain insights into important questions on the role of information frictions.
