WomenWork was built by Women for Women...
Two female entrepreneurs Isis Nyong’o and Asha Mweru, came together in 2017, and started WomenWork out of the stark realization that talented women in Africa are deliberately slowing down, starting micro-businesses or opting out entirely from the formal economy due to structural biases and unique challenges hindering their growth prospects.
They created a scalable approach through WomenWork to address these barriers.
Starting with a closed WomenWorkKE Facebook group, the network has organically grown to over 7,000 women entrepreneurs from diverse industries who are leveraging the peer-to-peer community to grow their business networks, gain support, increase their customer base and deepen their business knowledge.
