"For True economic development,

women are essential"
Here’s why these organizations and their Rotary club partners are supporting local women's entrepreneurship with financial literacy, small business loans, and one-on-one advisors.
Women’s economic empowerment contributes to a nation’s growth and the world’s economic health overall. Studies have shown that it boosts productivity, increases economic diversification and income equality, and supports economic resilience. And income loss associated with gender discrimination costs the world economy an estimated $12 trillion and well as a reduction of 16 percent of the cost to the global GPD.
In Guatemala, a country that for three decades was racked by civil war and where destitution and violence are still serious problems, a nonprofit called Namaste Direct is focused on women micro-entrepreneurs, helping them to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
For Mayan women who run small businesses in Guatemala’s western highlands, and for many others, Namaste Direct provides crucial support. The San Francisco, California, USA-based group, which counts Rotary clubs from across the United States and Canada among its sponsors, employs a three-pronged approach: financial literacy training, mentoring, and microloans.
Factors that enable and constrain women’s economic empowerment:
Direct factors: linked to women’s individual or collective lived experiences
  1. Education, skills development, and training
  2. Access to quality decently paid work
  3. Address unpaid care and work burdens
  4. Access to property, assets, and financial services
  5. Collective action and leadership
  6. Social protection
Underlying factors: wider structural conditions that determine women’s individual or collective lived experiences
  1. Labor market characteristics
  2. Fiscal policy
  3. Legal, regulatory and policy framework
  4. Gender norms and discriminatory social norms

Growing local economies is one of Rotary’s areas of focus.
