THE STORY:

WOMENS INITIATIVE FOR SELF EMPLOYMENT wrote -

For 25 years, Women’s Initiative for Self Employment has been providing high-potential, low-income women with the business training, funding and ongoing support to start their own businesses and become economically self sufficient.   A national nonprofit, Women’s Initiative offers business management training, technical assistance, and financial services, in English and Spanish, in New York, Oakland and San Francisco. Our program helps improve the quality of life for the women we serve, their families and our communities.  The women who go through our program significantly increase their income and assets while launching businesses, creating jobs and stimulating the local economy.  In 2012, recent graduates of our program created and retained more than 5,300 jobs! 

Our mission is to build the entrepreneurial capacity of women to overcome economic and social barriers and achieve self-sufficiency.

For 25 years, Women’s Initiative has proven that women create jobs for themselves and others, access the mainstream economy, and increase their economic self-sufficiency when they are given business planning and financing support.  We know that over 25 years:

  • 7,823 women have started and grown their own businesses.
  • 12,281 jobs have been created or retained.
  • $4.9 billion has been returned to the local economy as a result of our clients starting businesses, increasing their sales, earning more income, creating local jobs, and paying sales tax.
