BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF WWB USA INC
EVENT DATE: May 18, 2013
I am planning to participate in a site visit to Tunisia to visit Enda Inter-Arabe, an affiliated organization of Women's World Banking between May 18-24. Women's World Banking is a non-profit microfinance organization that works globally to economically empower poor women and their families. Enda Inter-Arabe deals with very poor clients who earn less than US$1/day or population in the bottom half living under the poverty line.
WWB organizes these site visits to various locations that have signiifcant unmet needs in terms of providing women with resources to economically empower themselves. I will be participating in this site visit in hopes to learn more about the outcomes of microfinance, and wtih the insight to spread the word and encourage greater visibility to positive outcomes related economic empowerment of women.
