The Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, Millicom International Cellular (Tigo) and USAID launch an innovative project to bring opportunities for women entrepreneurs in Tanzania, Rwanda and Ghana. The partnership gives an opportunity to empower women through mobile technology by providing 4,000 women with business skills training and valuable opportunities to increase their income through mobile retail channels over a period of 18 months. The women involved will have access to a 12-month working capital loans for their mobile money businesses. This will be distributed to the women entrepreneurs through Millicom’s mobile financial services platform called TigoCash. The initiative will deliver financial literacy and business development trainings for the women entrepreneurs, to support them in managing their loan repayments and their mobile money agent business.
