One of PCI’s goals is to improve human rights and gender equality. To do this, PCI has harnessed the power toward proactive change with its Women Empowered (WE) Initiative. PCI’s Women Empowered Initiative is a global effort to promote the economic and social empowerment of women through the formation of self-managed and self-sustaining savings groups.
PCI provides training to savings group participants in governance, record keeping, savings and lending, and entrepreneurship. Regular group meetings provide a platform for social support and individual leadership development, enabling women to become powerful agents of economic and societal transformation within their communities. The Women Empowered Initiative is currently being implemented in 12 countries – Guatemala, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Haiti, the US, Ethiopia, Botswana, Liberia, Zambia, Tanzania, and Malawi – with a current membership of over 438,000.
