Gift Mbewe,
Zambia Ambassador of Future Females



Gifts mission is to build successful, sustainable and relevant female entrepreneurs by creating and growing an entrepreneur support network, the breeds, trains and empowers women to achieve their dreams.

I am part of the Future Females movement because...
"Growing up and seeing first hand how enterprising my mother was and what this did for our family, I have come to conclude that women entrepreneurs are the backbone of economic growth and are powerful engines of development and financial inclusion. When she succeeds, we all succeed. Female entrepreneurs are driven by resilience, determination and the desire to provide for their families and communities , and supporting and promoting them will surely have a  significant positive impact on our country."
