WomensTrust, Inc.

Our mission is to empower women and girls in Ghana through microenterprise development, education, and healthcare and to inspire others to do the same elsewhere. Microloans support self-sufficiency, job creation, and community development. Microlending and educational scholarships for girls in Pokuase, Nsawam and other low-income communities in Ghana are the foundations of our success. Our microloans help women to develop stable incomes, and our scholarships help keep girls in school so that they may complete their education and have more career and life options.
