The Role of Women Entrepreneurs in Africa

The Role of Women Entrepreneurs in Africa

Africa is the only region in the world where more women than men choose to become entrepreneurs. Despite this astounding statistic, male-owned enterprises have six-times more capital than female-owned enterprises, and the lower access to assets affects their ability to obtain loans, and in turn, grow their business. In order to counteract this inequality, governments need to propose policies that foster gender equality would have a tremendous impact on Africa’s growth.

What kinds of policies can the governments put in place to foster gender equality? What tips do these successful women have to offer future women on their path to success?

Listen to female entrepreneurs and their path to success in business: Dounia Taarji, President of the Hassan II Fund for Economic and Social Development; Shreen Ghaleb, CEO and Founder of Capeesh; and Loufia Akki, Human Resources Director of L’Oréal Morocco.
