Entrepreneurship skills for Venezuelan migrants and refugees

ILO Chief technical advisor, María Olave, explains how the ILO has provided entrepreneurship training to Venezuelan migrants and refugees in Ecuador and Peru during the COVID-19 pandemic. Well over five million Venezuelans have become refugees and migrants in recent years, the majority of whom are living in neighbouring countries in Latin America.
