  • 0



The Amazons Watch Magazine invites you to participate in the Women & Finance Summit/Awards 2017, being organized as a platform for shinning the spotlight on the trends, opportunities and challenges facing Women in the quest to improve their economic status in the African society.

The summit, with the Theme: Increasing Women’s Access to Finance: The Trends, Opportunities & Challenges, will bring together key stakeholders- financial institutions, companies and individuals- to showcase the trends and economic opportunities for women in Africa, while continuing the discourse in seeking out ways to further increase women access to finance, particularly in rural areas.

Women over the years have been unfortunately and disproportionately burdened by work and poverty. They bear the main share of the burden with limited decision making powers, excluded from the political, economic, and social power structures. Today, the story of the African woman is changing as a number of financial institutions, companies and individuals have stayed true in dedication and service to women in Africa, empowering women by increasing their access to financial services, improving their capacity to generate and control income and other key economic resources through training programmes. Remarkably, more of the Women in Africa have gradually become financially independent with the ability to manage loans, save and adopt certain financial responsibilities.

This Summit therefore is a celebration of the phenomenal impact of the programmes, products and services of a select group of financial institutions, non-governmental organisations, companies and individuals that support women empowerment objectives. There shall be opportunities for unique presentations/ showcase of some of innovative products and services aimed at empowering the African woman financially.

The Summit is scheduled to hold at the Sandton Sun Hotel, Johannesburg-South Africa on February 23, 2017.
