“What makes women powerful?” – by worldvision.ca
Women’s financial empowerment is transformative. Studies have proven that women spend the majority of their profits on their families and children, including improving healthcare, nutrition and education. They can keep their children in school and learning. When women are empowered, their families, communities and countries are better off.
Through VisionFund, World Vision collectively lends to more than 1, 100, 000 people – more than 68% are women. These small loans provide the working capital to grow a business, allowing women to create sustainable livelihoods and exert greater control over their financial future as they improve their lives and the lives of their families.
As we approach International Women’s Day this Sunday, March 8th….please take a moment to watch “financial empowerment” for women in action!
