I want to see a world where women microentrepreneurs have access to capital and a global marketplace allowing them to grow their businesses, support their families and communities. Too often, microcredit is the only means available to developing entrepreneurs. Yet microcredit is limited in its impact due to high interest rates and lack of an assured marketplace. Women – particularly those in Muslim countries – have not reaped the full benefits of microcredit due to lack of financial education and religious beliefs.
