Giving Credit Where It’s Due: Access to Capital for Women in African Markets

May 16, 2019 - 9:30 am

1030 15th St NW, 12th Floor
Washington, DC

The number of women-run businesses in Africa has skyrocketed in recent years. The continent has some of the highest rates of female entrepreneurship in the world. But women disproportionately face barriers to credit and capital that hinder the growth and survival of their businesses. Please join the Atlantic Council’s Africa Center on Thursday, May 16, for a conversation on women’s entrepreneurship and gendered barriers to raising capital in African markets. Panelists will discuss how to build on OPIC’s new 2X Women’s Initiative and improve access to capital for women entrepreneurs in Africa and beyond.
