Providing Women Entrepreneurs with the Tools for Success

Here at Grameen America, our mission is to help women who live in poverty build small businesses and gain financial independence. We believe empowering women is the best way to accomplish this – not only through microloans, but also through financial education and training. To build on our momentum, we constantly strive to better understand the needs of our borrowers so that we can provide them with the tools they need to succeed.

This summer, we partnered with Women Entrepreneurs of New York City (WE NYC), an initiative of the NYC Department of Small Business Services, to hold forums in which borrowers from our New York City branches could discuss their challenges and aspirations. We are looking forward to using this feedback to provide our borrowers with exactly what they need in order to grow their businesses and thrive as entrepreneurs.
