Youth @ Work - Belgium

7,843 views

Young people have been hardest hit by the economic crisis as they often lack the experience and skills to be competitive. Today one in five young Europeans cannot find a job. To emphasise the value of young people in the workforce, the Youth@Work action aims to show that thanks to their fresh take on the world, young people often have innovative ideas and energy. In Belgium, 50% of the population has a favourable opinion of entrepreneurs but the entrepreneurship rate is still below 10%. Diane Mbarushimana, 27, took the risk and is establishing a company called Guheka to make products for parents and young children, such as baby carriers. As she didn't feel confident enough to become self-employed, she first turned to an association which helps her to concentrate on her start-up without having to reach a certain level of turnover each month. Then she applied for a micro-loan, through microStart. Nowadays she’s really happy to be her own boss.
