MUVA Paper Series 4

The Importance of Soft Skills for Strengthening Agency in Female Entrepreneurship Programmes

Published on 4 April 2022

This paper is part of the MUVA Paper Series on female entrepreneurship. It focuses on how soft skills in female entrepreneurship programmes strengthen agency and impact economic empowerment of women entrepreneurs in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

It draws on both the literature and lessons learned from Mozambique-based social incubator MUVA. By exploring MUVA’s entrepreneurship experience, this paper contributes to debates in the literature about the importance of soft skills in female entrepreneurship programmes for enhanced self-esteem, self-confidence and self-efficacy to strengthen agency.
