Survey to Explore Growth Barriers Faced by Female Entrepreneurs in East Africa:

by Graça Machel Trust; New Faces New Voices; Women in Media Network

This research is unique as it is one of few studies that looks at women entrepreneurs from a regional perspective, to assess similarities and differences in how women entrepreneurs are coping with financial and non-financial barriers to growth in Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda respectively. The study also establishes how these women currently fund their businesses, explores attitudes to different types of financing to expand their enterprises and reveals the funding gaps and capacity building needs. Through the findings and insights gained, we want to contribute to unlocking a massive opportunity that will see a triple line impact and benefit to society overall. More women entrepreneurs will lead to increased visibility, broader access across sectors and an inspired younger female generation ready to emulate and build on the successes achieved.
