The main objective of the FREE  project is to assist women from rural areas in 5 partner countries (Iceland, UK, Lithuania, Croatia and Bulgaria) to become successful entrepreneurs with a focus on small business development.

The main target group is female rural entrepreneurs with a concrete business idea or currently running a newly established company. An increasing number of women in rural areas are interested in starting their own business but they still face some obstacles such as lack of finance, training and networking. Project FREE aims to overcome those obstacles and provide support and practical instruments to empower and encourage female rural entrepreneurs.

The main project aims are to strengthen the skills and competences of the target group, to help them grow their network and to encourage creativity and start-ups.
