Growing Real Opportunities for Women

This program opened my eyes about what I can do in Ireland. I had some experience of business in Lithuania, but felt afraid to start it in Ireland. I am feeling supported and confident now. I started my own business here- I run salsa classes. I can manage now and have good contacts and people I can ask for advice.
