YEREVAN. – Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pasinyan encourages women to set up micro enterprises and help their families.
During a live on Facebook, Pashinyan noted that he knows many cases where men do not allow their wives to engage in entrepreneurship fearing that women would suddenly get more income.
“I couldn't understand them as a man, and know I cannot understand them being a prime minister. It is illogical: you can change the social condition of your family, but you are not allowed to. Speaking about the company, I mean making baked goods or candied fruits and selling them to stores,” he explained. “I consider women one of the forces with the greatest potential of the economic revolution. If women are more active in this regard, we will succeed.”
