Starting up is now easier for women in business | BBC Report, Kenya
In a recent interview for the BBC last month, a local Kenyan woman entrepreneur said that she felt that things were better for women starting businesses today than when did so herself in the 1990s. According to the BBC report, entrepreneur Terry Mungai explained “When we were starting out, if you were a woman and you went to the bank for a loan, they wanted to know who you were married to and whether you had permission to be in business.”
She now believes there’s a much more level playing field for women in business, and she herself plays an active role in helping young women to have confidence in themselves, and create employment, through her thriving hair and beauty business in Kenya.
Do you agree that there is more of a level playing field for women starting their own businesses and seeking funding support from banks in Kenya?Read the BBC report here
