Funding women entrepreneurs

“To intensify efforts to financially include women, in 2014, the National Empowerment Fund established a Women Empowerment Fund which is aimed at accelerating the provision of funding to businesses owned by black women. The funding starts from R250 000 to R75 million across a range of sectors, for start-ups, expansions and equity acquisition purposes. Although this is a step in the right direction, there is a need to create more funding instruments to assist women entrepreneurs.”
