AfDB Expands Grants Program for Sahel Women-Led Businesses

AfDB

Administered by the G5 Sahel Union of Chambers of Commerce, the grants will boost access to finance, markets and business development services for women led businesses while helping them enhance productivity, access employment opportunities and participate in capacity building and skills development initiatives.

Malado Kaba, Director for Gender, Women and Civil Society at the AfDB, said “We believe one key to building resilient African societies is the inclusion of women in economic development. The program’s wide range of business-related training and coaching, in addition to increasing access to finance, will go a long way toward reaching that goal.”

The development follows the release of a study conducted by the AfDB’s Gender, Women and Civil Society Department which identified challenges and opportunities for women-led businesses in the Sahel region.
