HerVenture in Guyana
Our business skills app HerVenture has supported over 5,000 women entrepreneurs in Guyana - more than one in 50.
HerVenture is one of the Foundation’s five flagship programmes. The business skills mobile learning app provides women entrepreneurs of micro and small enterprises with the knowledge and skills to successfully grow their businesses. It has reached over 65,000 women to date, supporting more than 5,000 women in Guyana alone. That’s over one in 50 Guyanese women using HerVenture to start and grow businesses.
The app offers essential business training and support on the go. It features nine learning tracks on a range of topics, including launching a business, accessing finance, expanding market access and e-commerce. In Guyana, there is also a tenth learning track on mobile money.
HerVenture has been available in Guyana since September 2021. The app’s continued success is made possible thanks to our funding partners ExxonMobil Foundation and in-country delivery partners ActionINVEST Caribbean, Inc.
