HerWallet

In 2017, we launched HerWallet, a social business enterprise providing microloans to urban poor women. The women call themselves “Widows of the living” because they are married but to absent husbands and thus the economic weight of running their families rests on their shoulders. “We got tired of asking for money from our ‘dead’ husbands, which may earn you a slap,” one woman said. Discouraged by a rigorous banking system, they turned to individual money lenders for loans, who charged exorbitant interest rates in addition to sexually harassing them. This is in a country where GBV is at 63% among women with the lowest of economic status. HerWallet is a multipurpose project that is economically empowering women and helping curb GBV in homes. 30 households benefited from the project. The women own market stalls, retail shops among other businesses.
