She is Capable

The Business Women Connect program has helped Mozambican women improve their businesses and increase access to savings. This impact can be seen in a new short film titled “She is Capable”, which serves as a powerful reminder of why it is so important to invest in women and how that investment has the potential to transform individual lives and entire communities.

The BWC program trains hundreds of women so that they can impact thousands in their communities.

Three Phases, Two Provinces, Demonstrable Results.

Through a pilot program and phase II expansion, BWC has made significant gains in increasing financial inclusion among women entrepreneurs, a critical, yet underserved demographic.

We measure our impact in numbers and in women; our commitment to monitoring, evaluation and learning is enriched by the honest feedback we receive from women beneficiaries.

MOZAMBIQUE IS HOME TO MORE THAN ONE MILLION FEMALE ENTREPRENEURS, MANY OF WHOM HAVE YET TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL.

Our strategy is woman-centered.

 As Entrepreneurs, as learners, as agents of change.

BWC takes a triple approach to financial inclusion - we work across three strands to improve outcomes on supply- and demand-sides of financial inclusion. Our strategy focuses on access to financial services for women, knowledge of business skills for women, and sustainability through institutional gender-based training.
