As in many developing countries, women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo often carry a heavy burden. We are committed to empowering women by funding various grassroots and small business initiatives. Through our Women’s Empowerment Program, we provide access to job training and support with small business development.
Our program allows for women entrepreneurs to request business items and funds to help get their businesses started. To ensure sustainability over time, participants become part of a supportive entrepreneurial community. Small businesses launched have included retail operations of food, clothing, or other household goods, and alterations and textile shops.
