Access To Finance
The Roadmap 2020 study revealed that most of the women-owned businesses are self- financed and consequently, have remained in the micro or small scale category, no having been able to scale up. There is need to educate women on infusion of finance on the one hand, and on the other, to build skills, financial planning and projections and the confidence to approach and access debt financing or equity investment.
Our strategy is to train entrepreneurs in financial skills and facilitate access to government programs, debt financing from banks and other financial institutions, as well as seed, angel and VC equity investors. Entrepreneurs would be prepared and then introduced to financing institutions and investors.
