JANA is a program under C@rma in Istanbul, focusing on supporting refugee women to develop their own women-led businesses.
JANA targets disadvantageous refugee women, willing to earn a sustainable income but experiencing difficulties to do so. Since 2016, the organization has supported women to understand the challenges and realities that they face. JANA has been providing training and mentorship for financial literacy, setting up businesses, and entrepreneurship. They create communities and make them access to networks and tools to make them work independently.
Within these supports, many women have now progressively developed a sense of self-confidence in their ability to earn a living and the courage to push their business further.
