    Farm Radio partner PROTEGE QV, in partnership with the Commonwealth Connects Program, has developed a resource kit to assist radio organizations in preparing programs about women in micro-enterprises. The Multi Media Resource Kit includes detailed information on how to start and operate a micro-enterprise, as well as tips on how to use radio programming to reinforce the capacities of women in micro-enterprises. A range of topics related to starting and managing a small business are covered, including: choosing what kind of business to start and identifying necessary resources, book keeping and stock control, and pricing and marketing.

    Suggested uses for the resources include:
    -Reading text on the air “as is”
    -Translating the text into a local language

    -Using information to augment existing programs
    -Using information to draft questions for an interview or round table discussion with one or more local resource persons.
