These are Africa’s fastest-growing businesses owned by women

There is a global call for entrepreneurs in Africa who can make a difference on a large scale and find effective and affordable solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing the continent.

Entrepreneurship is seen as a vehicle to drive growth and to help alleviate poverty in Africa, with women entrepreneurs usually being the mainstay of instruments of development and financial inclusion.

Fortunately, some African women are beating the odds and are making it big in entrepreneurship.
