Women in Small Business

Women are extremely hardworking and creative when it comes to business, and the money they earn provides for rent on their home, school fees for children, and daily food for the household. But raising the capital to start a small business is challenging for many Kenyan women living in rural villages or inner city informal settlements. Manasprings believes wholeheartedly in empowering women in small business, knowing that when you facilitate economic empowerment, women are more able to advocate for themselves against injustices that impact their lives.

Helping to start a small business for a Kenyan woman can break the poverty cycle, ensure food security, and bring transformation to women and their families.


Your donation to support this Manasprings community initiative will help women and their families to live in wellbeing.
