A page from a publication on women entrepreneurs with disabilities shows a photo of Susan, a Deaf woman entrepreneur in Zambia.

Women with disabilities around the world are becoming entrepreneurs so they can lift themselves out of poverty. And more than one Deaf woman entrepreneur is among them. The International Labour Organization (ILO) explains lessons it has learned while promoting entrepreneurship among women with disabilities. One story that ILO shares is a Deaf, HIV-positive woman entrepreneur in Zambia, named Susan. Susan coordinates a telephone call center and sells cell phones.

The ILO published this brochure in 2008. Meanwhile, the PDF file is partly accessible for people using screen reading software, but with some difficulty.
