Come make a difference for another woman in the world
As of March 8, 2017, International Women’s Day, Wanderful is partnering with Womentum to donate $10 for every annual membership purchased to fund a female entrepreneur in a developing economy.
How it works
Wanderful donates $10 to Womentum
Each month, we’ll tally up the new members of our community and make a donation to Womentum to support the woman entrepreneur highlighted that month.
You help a woman entrepreneur fulfill her dreams
Easy as that, you can help women in developing economies around the world to fulfill their dreams as entrepreneurs.
Our April 2017 entrepreneur: Yeimmy in Ecuador
Amount needed: US $200
The below summary is provided for our use by Yeimmy and Womentum:
Yeimmy was a human rights advocate for rural workers in Colombia before she escaped to Ecuador as a political refugee. She’s struggled to get back on her feet, but now is seeking to improve her community through personal development. With this funding, she hopes to be able to reach out to more potential participants and to rent a space to host the workshops. Yeimmy is motivated to achieve success by her daughter and with her daughter by her side, Yeimmy is ready to take on anything as she starts her business.
Womentum is a nonprofit pay it forward crowdfunding platform that enables anyone in the world to donate to women entrepreneurs in developing countries. Through their unique pay it forward model, donors are able to have a measurable impact. All the money raised on their platform is a donation and when the women entrepreneurs have profitable businesses, they then pay it forward and give money to someone else in their community to start a business.
March 2017: Katerine, Colombia
Katerine grew up in an abusive household, and later endured an abusive partner. She has now decided to make handmade accessories to feed her child and put a roof over her head. She needs the money to get better tools so she can make more accessories faster.
