Masters in Development Economics in England

Masters in Development Economics in England
Hannah Wangombe was recently brought onto the KAWBO team to serve as the ABWN Hub Manager; serving as liaison between Vital Voices, the Africa Businesswomen’s Network (ABWN) and KAWBO.  Having recently obtained her Masters in Development Economics in England, Hannah recognizes the essential role that a businesswomen’s organization can play via its support of women in a growing and industrializing economy such as Kenya’s.  She contends that a successful businesswomen’s organization must address the needs of women while simultaneously offering them opportunities and serving as a voice for change and recognition within government and the international business community.   Starting small businesses, according to Hannah, has the potential to empower women economically and socially and pull them out of the “poverty cycle.”  An organization created for these small business owners can serve to ensure that this empowerment is sustainable and far-reaching.
