Visa Everywhere Initiative gave us the unique opportunity to expand our vision and enhance Tez’s product offering to lift financial inclusion in Pakistan. The initiative fosters a culture of innovation and every participant had a persistent belief that tomorrow is going to be much better than today. The positivity and shared optimism was infectious!

Social Impact challenge winner
The Social Impact challenge asked how women entrepreneurs around the world drive social change by supporting equitable livelihoods and strengthening local economies.
The Visa Everywhere Initiative to me is the real definition of what women empowerment is all about. What I loved and still do about participating in the program is the consistent follow up after funding.The global networking platforms and mentorship that Visa makes available to the female entrepreneur continuously goes beyond the funding received.
