In partnership with the Coca-Cola Foundation, women in Africa (WIA) have initiated a call for entries from women entrepreneurs for its program JAMII Femmes.
The program aims to impact 20,000 women entrepreneurs from 10 African countries over the next three years. In its first year, the program aims to support women entrepreneurs in 3 countries: Kenya, Ivory Coast, and Nigeria.
JAMII Femmes seeks innovative solutions to bring positive changes in Africa by improving the quality of life for thousands of people and will allow participants to receive support through online training, networking, mentorship, and local boot camps.
