Global Credit Pros is a fintech company that aims to halt the cycle of debt for Filipinos as well as take them onto a path of trouble-free retirement. As of the moment, their main target market is the BPO space as this is one of the most resilient industries in the Philippines, growing at 10 per cent a year.
WE Rise takes in 20 female entrepreneurs from sectors such as agriculture, retail, technology, personal care, services, and affordable housing.
According to a press statement, the accelerator began in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 with a focus on access to financing to help close the gender finance gap. Over the course of the programme, the cohort had the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of Villgro’s customised mentorship program, focused learning sessions, and technical assistance.
In hosting WE Rise, Villgro Philippines partners with Value for Women and was supported by Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs’ (ANDE) Advancing Women’s Empowerment Fund (AWEF).
It has hosted a showcase of the companies in late August.
