Women Entrepreneurs Becoming Force in the Developing World
Women are becoming a huge force in the world of entrepreneurship. Many countries believe that women are going to be the ones transforming their local economies and changing the world. Organizations, such as Financial Independence through Entrepreneurship (FITE), are becoming a part of this movement by supplying microfinance loans to 30,000 women across 68 countries. In the last year the La Pietra Coalition launched The Third Billion campaign to advocate for women’s advancement. This article describes this great campaign and how it has been a huge driving force in promoting women and identifying challenges that stand between them and equal opportunity.
