Attaining Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for women means increasing women participation in leadership and decision making as well as guaranteeing their rights to productive resources. Goal 5, 8, and 9 in the SDGs indicate the importance of gender equality and small-medium enterprises (SMEs) growth.
