Invigorating Women Entrepreneurs in Peru


The Thunderbird School of Global Management is participating in “Strengthening Women Entrepreneurship in Peru.”

The global program, which will help more than 100,000 women launch and grow their small or micro enterprises in Peru, is being funded with grants from the Multilateral Investment Fund of the Inter-American Development Bank; Peru’s leading microfinance institution Mibanco S.A.; the Australian government; and Goldman Sachs Group.

“Peru is one of only two countries in the world in which women are more likely to start a business than men.”

The project, which seeks to address the lack of educational training tailored to the needs of women entrepreneurs, will have two tracks: one for women micro entrepreneurs and another for women small business owners. The program will be part of Thunderbird’s philanthropic arm, Thunderbird for Good, which specializes in customized business training for women entrepreneurs in developing countries.
