Thank you so much for your continued support to give women an opportunity to do business and help their families. We have been very busy at the mhub in the past weeks welcoming both Lifepoint church team from Arizona USA and 2 University Of Edinburgh UK students. Two business women from life point church Toni and Elizabeth helped us to train the women on basic business skills and lay out a partnership strategy for the individual women we are partnering with. It was great to hear them share their expereinces of running successful businesses and mentoring women in business.
2 UK students are directly attached to the mhub and are helping us investigate the effectiveness of table banking as a sustainable way of empowering rural women as well as barriers that hinder young entrepreneurs from growing and scaling their business. All this will help us serve our clients better.
We have succesfully recruited the 10 women who are going to benefit from these funds. To ensure that this program is sustainable, each of the women recruited are registering with $60 and are required to pay this in onthly instalments of $5 over 12 months. This is used to pay facilitators for various trainings at the hub and also to show commitment from the members.We are looking forward to start disbursing the funds once we reach atleast half of our goal of $1500 i.e at least $750.
We thank you for your incredible generosity that has seen us raise $365 together. W invite you to share our campaign and help us reach this goal and empower womem to support themselves and families.
