Women Make Change

About the show

Investing in women is smart economics. Research has repeatedly revealed that whenever women are actively involved in their local economies, a positive ripple effect is felt throughout their communities. But how does this actually work and could it be the solution to the extreme poverty that continues to plague millions of people around the world? This series seeks to find out by following six women who are doing just that – in Kenya, Brazil, Ghana, Nicaragua, Papua New Guinea and Rwanda.
