Women Entrepreneurship

AFI since its inception, has been working to empower women social entrepreneurs. It is our aim to provide systematic solutions to the challenges faced by women. We have built an online networking portal that will enable AFI to conduct a series of capacity building programs for women entrepreneurs in its fold through mentorship sessions, webinars and podcasts.

By reflecting on the journeys of women social entrepreneurs in the past, we aim to bridge the gaps of opportunity of investment and scaling through tailor-made interventions.

In recognition of our relentless support to women entrepreneurs, we are now backed by the eBay Foundation to take our mission to the next level.
