Last week was International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. Each year, the World Bank recognizes women who have made an impact in their communities. This year two of our young Senegalese entreprenuer women caught the World Bank’s attention for their innovative thinking.
Kate Mahugu, cofounder of Shopsoko made quite an impression when she was in Washington, DC for our 2013 Mobile Startup Camp. She not only impressed infoDev but has caught the attention of global corporations and well-established organizations. There's no stopping her as she's determined to let others know about local artisans in developing countries.
