social business for young women in Africa
I have this burning urge to empower young women (as always) using the "newish" concept of social business as explained by prof. Mohammad Yunus, and I have a few ideas that are giving me sleepless nights. However, I am still working on my confidence and knowledge.
Has anyone applied this concept in their communities? Please share your experiences. How have you empowered an individual or community by setting up a social business? What were/are your challenges? I am in the process of collecting information, and so far I think it is a brilliant way of empowering communities/groups without encouraging dependency. Plus, it enables a sense of ownership, and it’s sustainable.
Your help and mentorship will be greatly appreciated.
