Indonesia: Enhancing procurement from women-owned and led businesses (SheTrades)



    The ITC SheTrades-Unilever project aims to enhance procurement from women-owned and led businesses in Indonesia and catalyse gender equality in the country. The partnership unites ITC’s expertise in supporting the growth of women-owned micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs) with Unilever’s experience in fostering inclusivity and sustainability within value chains. 

    The collaboration will build a pipeline of eligible women-owned/led companies to become suppliers of Unilever and help the company advance its commitment to spend €2 billion annually on diverse businesses worldwide by 2025. Additionally, the partnership will build Indonesian women-owned and led businesses' technical capacities to comply with the sourcing requirements of large corporations such as Unilever.
