The How of lending to women’s businesses in Africa

The funding deficit for female entrepreneurs in sub-Saharan Africa amounts to $42 billion, as reported by the African Development Bank (AFDB). Extensive efforts have been made to substantiate the business case for channelling capital to women-owned enterprises. Nevertheless, there is still a long way to go to provide African women entrepreneurs with the much-needed, timely, and cost-effective financing. The webinar curated by the FSD Network Gender Collaborative Programme is bringing together three (FSDs – Africa, Uganda and Rwanda) to share interesting lessons on the kinds of instruments that can incentivize lenders to work harder to reach women businesses in Africa.
