Massoumeh Ebtekar, the vice president, emphasizing that a nationally important goal has been achieved in 31 provinces with the support of the Women and Family Affairs Vice Presidency said, “This has been a very important step we have taken as an entrepreneurship and advocacy strategy for the entry of educated girls into employment." 

The Vice President of Women and the Family said that the My Business Plan project was one of the most viable and supported projects of the Vice Presidency. “We expect that with the support of investors from the private sector of the banking system, those who have primary education in their field and have the basic background for entering the business arena will be able to take the next steps and continue this path,” she continued.

Ebtekar stated that 780 people have had initial training at this stage. "We have also cooperated with the banking system in this regard, and there are two facilities for women's employment," she resumed. “Sustainable facilities especially for our villages is currently being undertaken and rural women have made great use of this. So far 17,000,000,000,000 tomans have been distributed between villages as well as existing facilities that were allocated in cities.”

Ebtekar has continued to follow up on existing problems at these facilities in dedicated meetings and tried to resolve them. "We provide the opportunity for women active in various economic fields to come and discuss their problems with the authorities, decision makers and policymakers to and without intermediaries, and we hope that they will help us with this policy,” she noted.

Pointing out the United States’ withdrawal from JCPOA and the imposition of unlawful and cruel sanctions against the Iranian people, the Vice President of Women and Family Affairs said, “As the Supreme Leader said, in a situation with economic warfare against the Iranian people, we should focus more on addressing the issue of our society's potential for employment. This is definitely a collaborative effort that can only be achieved with the help of organizations, specialized non-governmental organizations, and private sectors specialized in the field of employment and entrepreneurship.”

Massoumeh Ebtekar referred to the fact that the Vice Presidency for Women and Family Affairs is ready to cooperate with interested organizations and said, "I think that for the remainder of this initiative we will definitely have to help the 780 people that were successful in accomplishing the first phase of the My Business Plan project by progressing with the rest of this course.”

Referring to the growing number of graduating females, she continued, "Necessary networking for empowerment generation and the proliferation of these kinds of activities is much needed because the unemployment rate of our female graduates is between two-to-three times that of men. Nowadays, however, wherever opportunity has been provided, our daughters have been pioneering and succeeding, and with difficulties, they have managed to reach a clear path and play the part of a good role model for themselves, their families and for many members of the community.”
