..2019: Market Research
..2020: Pilot Project
WomenSave was born out of the idea that goal-based savings has the power to give women underserved by the formal financial system a real voice and risk-free tool to make their financial goals a reality.
Our founder, Marie Mintalucci, developed the concept over years of working in international development, first on food security projects across West Africa and then on female-led credit unions throughout Sub Saharan Africa.
With extensive help and support from Global Partners for Development, an international nonprofit dedicated to community led development in East Africa, WomenSave was able to conduct market research and conduct a pilot project. Now we are our own organization, excited and ready to expand financial access to even more underserved women in a meaningful and sustainable manner.
