Celebrating International Women's Day

On March 8th, we commemorate International Women's Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

Five Talents is proud to work with women in developing countries around the world. Eighty percent of our program participants are women.

Economic Empowerment of Women

As women are empowered to save and develop their own businesses, they gain confidence and skills in leadership, decision-making, financial literacy, management, and more. Five Talents celebrates the dignity, strength, beauty, talent, and faith of these women. They are inspiring hope and bringing transformation to their communities.


To celebrate International Women's Day we've compiled a collection of images of successful business women from marginalized communities around the world. Shot on location with members of Five Talents savings groups, this collage features photos from award-winning photographers captured in 8 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Learn more about how financial inclusion helps women win influence both in and outside their homes.
