In this section

  • Women’s economic empowerment

    Women face unique barriers to employment. When those barriers are broken, whole families and communities win.

  • Fighting poverty with jobs

    We equip members with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed as entrepreneurs. They take care of the rest.

  • Climate resilience

    We promote green jobs and help smallholder farmers stand up to climate change with new practices and crops.

  • Youth

    We’re preparing the next generation of entrepreneurs, before and after they leave they school.

  • Credit

    Our members need credit to launch and grow their micro-businesses. We make sure they get it, through us or a partner.
