The
Awakened
Project

The
Story

Women are underrepresented as entrepreneurs. In Canada, about 4 in 10 entrepreneurs are women, yet represent over half of the working population (source – Canadian Entrepreneurship Initiative).

Women have lack access to capital to grow their businesses. The World Bank Group’s International Finance Corporation (IFC) estimates that as many as 70% of women-owned small-and-medium enterprises in developing countries are unserved or underserved by financial institutions – resulting in a credit gap of around $285 billion.

Catherine saw this as an opportunity –
provide funding to women entrepreneurs to help start their businesses

Now, how do this?
