Investing in women’s economic empowerment builds a direct path towards gender equality, poverty eradication and inclusive economic growth where everyone stands to benefit. In fact, women who earn income will invest it back into their families thus enabling their children to attend school, eat nutritious food, receive crucial medical checkups, and enjoy an overall brighter future.
CMW is seeking for partners so as to initiate loans and savings groups across The Greater Northern Bhar el Ghazal as a pilot project before it can be rolled out to the other states in South Sudan, where more women will be given a chance to take charge of their financial futures. These groups will meet regularly to pool funds, pitch business ideas and offer one another loans.
In addition, these meetings will also lend support beyond finance by providing a safe and comfortable space where women can ask questions and speak freely about their concerns.
