CARE International partnered with 60 Decibels and Mission Measurement – who represented Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth – to perform a study across Vietnam, Pakistan, and Peru to measure core business themes and capture the impact of the CARE Women’s Entrepreneurship program.

CARE Women’s Entrepreneurship programming aims to reduce barriers that women entrepreneurs face by offering a combination of services – both financial and non-financial – that are essential to creating sustainable growth and empowerment for women entrepreneurs.

This report presents aggregate results based on surveys conducted with clients in 3 different countries. By assessing performance across implementing countries, we can highlight variations that inspire conversations and spur learning between countries to drive deeper impact and satisfaction.
