About the mission.

Our Mission

We hope to use technology, business, and education to increase economic opportunites for women in Niger.

Since poverty in Niger disproportionately affects women, she organized a team and created the Women’s Initiative in Niger [WIN]. The WIN project helps women learn profitable skills and create products that they can sell to the global economy on our marketplace, Mena Marche.

One of our vendors, Haoua Mounkaila, has expressed her joy in seeing her designs sold all over the world. This marketplace helps the women not only become formal business owners but also gives them more autonomy over their income and futures.

This project began as a small business venture, but has grown into a way to help women in Niger.
