Dimensions of opportunity

Women Entrepreneurship

Bopinc boosts economic productivity and growth in low-income markets by unleashing women’s potential as entrepreneurs in value chains and consumers of beneficial products and services.

A business opportunity that will change the lives of millions

Women sales agents are known to be more trusted and convincing for consumers in low-income markets, especially when related to beneficial products that improve a family's quality of life.

Further to this, there are also opportunities in value chains to leverage the role of women as entrepreneurs, as they already play (often unpaid) roles - to contribute to work, such as processing of food and the ownership of piped water systems.

In addition, many women-led SMEs in relevant sectors can contribute to local economic growth and wider availability of essential products and services.
