THE newly-formed Johor Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JICCI) Women Entrepreneur Division was aimed at producing more Indian entrepreneurs in the state.
Its new chairperson Dr K. Tasha Sulosana said the division would encourage more women entrepreneurs through various programs and workshops.
“We are also targeting single mothers and the division will organise programs to allow these women to be financially independent and helping them set up their own businesses,” she said.
The division was launched by Malaysian Associated Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry president (MAICCI) Datuk K.K. Eswaran.
Dr Sulosana said some 30 women are registered under JICCI but the division was hoping to increase the number.
She added that the first training workshop will be held on March 13 at the Dato Wahid Hall in the JICCI office in Jalan Dato Jaafar 1 here.
“During the workshop, attendees would be able to attend various workshops including workshops on flower arrangements, ice-cream making, make-up, hair do, nail art, making accessories with beads,” she said.
She added that the workshop conducted would be free of charge and open to women of all ages.
