PPSE is financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation in Kosovo (SDC) and implemented by Swisscontact (lead partner), Riinvest Institute and PEM Consult.
Having the sustainable and gainful employment for men and women as its main target, the PPSE project interventions seek to create significant change for SMEs that operate in well-organized economic sectors, e.g. increased productivity that leads to more income and generation of new jobs.

PPSE interventions also seek to reduce barriers for women to access sustainable employment and to increase their decision-making power.
The project has two focus sectors: food processing and tourism
