Women in Small Enterprise Semi-Annual Report: January-June 2015
The period from January - June 2015 has been a time of intense learning for the WISE team. We have adjusted our strategy in ways that will enhance social outcomes and financial performance.
Countless women around the world are building successful small businesses. But the odds against women entrepreneurs in many developing countries can be staggering. Often, they face limited access to credit and property, household obligations consume their waking hours, and cultureal standards that discriminate against them. Oxfam's Women in Small Enterprise (WISE) celebrates these women and helps them defy the odds and creates partnerships that ease their pathway to future growth.
