WOMEN

Women are at the heart of what we do at African Business Collective. The brand is committed to helping them - whether as entrepreneurs starting their own business, promoting their causes, acting in their interest or providing opportunity for employment.

Africa is brimming with female creatives. However, we believe the biggest obstacle to their economic success is lack of access to international markets. We would like to play a small role in taking them one step closer to the global economy.

Are you a female creative spirit, artisan or designer and want to work with us? Contact us here.

70% of the world’s poor are women. Women and girls face more risks as the climate changes, from higher odds of being killed during a natural disaster to a greater risk of being forced into an early marriage or prostitution if prolonged drought or floods destroy a family’s finances.
