Dear Donor, 

Thank you for your generous donation to Accelerate Women Now. Your contribution helps us to build a thriving community of women entrepreneurs in Latin America who are committed to using business to improve their communities and the world. Together, we are working to level the playing field for women innovators, leaders, and entrepreneurs who are forging a new path for development. We are investing in the greatest resource the world has to offer: high-impact human potential. 

Many women entrepreneurs in Latin America become caught in a vicious cycle in which they are unable to access capital due to a lack of credentials, but are also unable to gain the necessary credentials without capital. Your donation has allowed Xochitl Palacio to be put in touch with strategic partners for her company through Agora’s Accelerator Program.  Agora women entrepreneurs harness the market to generate shared value for all key stakeholders - creating jobs, providing critical goods and services in under-served communities, and helping to protect the environment. 

With your support, we are getting the right kind of capital and support to those best poised to create impact.  

With gratitude and appreciation,

Thembi Mdachi, Associate

Agora Partnerships, DC
