An investment fund led by women for women who want to scale up their businesses and who are part of the Working Ladies-WIA Hub. The BI fund invests and supports women entrepreneurs to achieve business success. Additionally, our activities focus on deals that have a direct and positive impact on female entrepreneurs in the areas of fintech, FMCG, education, agribusiness, innovation and technology, and renewable energy.
The first accelerator hub in Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. We invest through our venture capital in female business owners who want to scale up their businesses locally and internationally.
A prepaid Visa card provided by the United Bank of Africa that enables its users to use all the advantages of banking services without the need of owning a bank account. Remaining a challenge for the banking institutions, the use of banking services in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is amongst the lowest in Africa and estimated at only four percent. Our Working Ladies Visa card has the purpose to improve the day-to-day living of women entrepreneurs and help them plan long-term goals as well as unexpected emergencies; as accountholders, they are more likely to use our Working Ladies Visa card services –such as credit and insurance– and start expanding their businesses, which will improve the overall quality of their lives. In that sense, we actively contribute to the objectives given by the Central Bank, which are to increase the account penetration rate to at least ten percent. Our main purpose is to make the unbankable women entrepreneurs become bankable by teaching them how to use banking services efficiently and sustainably.
