African women in general need to know that it’s OK for them to be the way they are- to see the way they are as a strength, and to be liberated from fear and from silence.Professor Wangari Maathai
Our Strategic Pillars
Empowerment through Table Banking
We have identified table banking as an innovative way of raising capital. This model will help women leverage their time and talents to transform their lives. Funds will be raised in form of capital pool, administering loans, fines, monthly group savings, registration fees etc,
Group guarantee will come into play where members act as guarantors to each other’s loan and when one defaults, the rest can’t access finance, which in turn motivates members to keep each other accountable.
Expand Market Linkages
Through partnerships we will facilitate trade/business relationships between our partners and members. We will connect buyers to producers and vice versa as well as offer our members with products and services at a subsidized cost.
Networks and Community Engagement
We create opportunities for sharing learning, designs and models. Periodically create platforms such as events- webinars, rural community meetings or fellowships to share and discuss potential positions and strategies.
Access to Capital and Investment
We help both experienced, inexperienced and less qualified borrowers get “access to capital” which would not be available through traditional banking system. Readily provide loans based on availability of funds and offer favorable repayment terms to all our members.
Enhance Enterprise Skills
We create learning opportunities for individuals and organizations along the entire development path.
We will provide a variety of topics to empower women with the skills to become successful business owners and effective change agents. We will also offer webinars, workshops and practical classes that will train women in actionable marketing, financial methods and practices to impact their business immediately.
