We empower women entrepreneurs in developing and emerging economies. Our goal is to boost women’s confidence, build their capability and facilitate their access to capital, to help them establish and grow businesses. We believe – and research proves – that women who are financially independent have greater control over their own lives, are better able to invest in their families, contribute to their economies and have a stronger voice in their societies.
Our programmes offer innovative solutions to the challenges facing women entrepreneurs in developing and emerging economies. They focus on building women’s confidence, capacity and access to capital – the crucial ingredients for business success. Our programmes give women access to skills, technology, networks and financial services. To date, we have reached over 136,000 women across more than 90 countries through our Mobile Technology, Mentoring Women in Business and Enterprise Development programmes.
The Foundation relies on the support of individuals, private sector partners, trusts, institutions, foundations, and others who give their time, expertise and funding to ensure that we can make a difference to the lives of women in developing and emerging markets. By supporting our work, you are enabling women across the world to take up their rightful places in their societies and economies.
