First female President of Mauritius, Her Excellency Dr Ameenah Gurib-Fakim has joined ImpactHER’s Executive Wise Counsel – a close-knit group of African female leaders designated to provide strategic guidance to ImpactHER with its efforts to help African women access investors to scale their businesses and capital to build sustainable and best-in-class businesses.

Under the leadership of Dr Gurib-Fakim, ImpactHER’s Wise Counsel will provide tactical guidance to help achieve the organization’s mission and vision and to ensure that African women-led businesses emerge stronger post-COVID-19.  

Commenting on the appointments, Investment Lawyer and Founder of ImpactHER, Efe Ukala, said: “We are most honoured and extremely delighted to have Her Excellency Dr Ameenah Gurib-Fakim lead this highly esteemed group of wise women, whose wisdom and guidance ImpactHER would be leveraging on to help African female entrepreneurs.

Speaking on joining the Executive Council, Dr Gurib-Fakim was quoted as telling Africa.com that  “ImpactHER is doing a great job empowering African female entrepreneurs by bridging the gender business financing gaps. That is the only way to bring female entrepreneurs to realize their potential. Empowering women is no longer just a moral thing to do, it makes good business sense”.

ImpactHER is one of the leading organizations for women-led businesses in Africa and has pledged to continually assist every female entrepreneur in Africa in reaching its potential and competing globally. The non-profit organization has trained and provided direct support to over 23,000 African women entrepreneurs in 53 African countries.
