THE STORY:

Empowered Women International (EWI) creates jobs and entrepreneurial opportunity for immigrant, refugees and low-income women in the Greater Washington DC Metro Area. We enable women to lift themselves and their families out of poverty by creating new career pathways and their own sustainable micro-businesses.

Services include: workforce development through entrepreneurship training, business coaching and mentoring, market access and support services to help women fully integrate, access resources and participate as engaged citizens and agents of change.

We launch 40-60 unemployed and low-income women in business in each year and provide an additional 150 women with business coaching and support services.

Participants are talented and high-potential immigrant, refugee and low-income women many of who are artists, food entrepreneurs, and micro-service entrepreneurs.

More than 75% of the women we serve have very low to extremely low household income at intake. About 45% of the women served increased their income after EWI's three-month Entrepreneur Training for Success.
