Women Make up roughly 51% of the world population, but…

Women, Essential Workers and Minorities need grants and scholarships because, despite their business and career success, they are still disadvantaged.

Some experts say that up to 90% of minority and women, small business owners are predicted to be denied a PPP loan because financial institutions are favoring pre-existing customers when distributing the funds.

Business grants for women will give them a chance at financial stability. The same is true for essential workers and other minorities.
