Between 2001 and 2004, the Ms. Foundation for Women, through the Collaborative Fund for Women’s Economic Development (CFWED), provided funding and technical support to nine organizations across the country that help low-income women to start and expand microenterprises. With support from CFWED, these organizations have been able to provide intensive business consulting and follow-up services to disadvantaged women entrepreneurs who have traditionally been left out of the financial and workplace mainstream, yet continue to create small businesses and jobs in their communities. This report is about the performance of these organizations and the outcomes of the women entrepreneurs they have assisted.
