A Report on the National Association of Business Women (NABW)

The National Association of Business Women (NABW) submitted an original grant proposal to CIPE in October 1997 to develop a private sector agenda for the economic empowerment of women in Malawi. As an NGO, NABW’s principal goal is to improve the economic status of Malawian women through development of programs that promote and expand productivity and profitability of women-owned businesses. Established in 1990, membership has grown about 15,000 people throughout Malawi. Today, Malawi as a democracy is a young rambunctious five year old. It is important to recognize the excruciatingly difficult political, economical, social, and cultural obstacles NABW has confronted during their funding period.
