In Zambia, in partnership with Goldman Sachs and the University of Cambridge, CAMFED launched the 10,000 Women Program in Young Women's Leadership and Enterprise in 2008. The Entrepreneurs profiles young women participants Florence, Esnart, Ng'andwe and Precious as they embark on five months of intensive training.
Like all the young women in the course, they come from backgrounds of extreme rural poverty, and many suffered from the loss of one or both of their parents. But with courage and determination these young women defy the odds and establish their own successful businesses. From a furniture store to a pre-school for vulnerable children, The Entrepreneurs prove that anything is possible.
