This Mother’s Day, let us honor all the ways our mother has made a difference in our life by making a difference in the lives of women around the world. There is no better way to honor our mother (and women around the world) than to do what they do every day : Make a Brighter World!
Womentum is a crowdfunding platform that allows anyone to donate to women entrepreneurs in need for a small fund to start or grow their business. Women entrepreneurs in developing countries lack access to capital and community support. Funding (donations) from Womentum enable entrepreneurs to make long-term investments in their businesses without having to worry about short-term repayments. We help build community amongst entrepreneurs by allowing them to support each other through re-donations.
In partnership with Womentum, Orora will be working with non-profit organizations to empower rural women to become solar entrepreneurs. The seed funding from Womentum will help rural women invest in solar lamps which she will sell to families in her community and help light up her village, as she makes a small amount of money to support herself and her family.
On May 8, Orora and Womentum are kick-starting this journey together to empower lives of many women around the world!
