What is FEMPROW?

FEMPROW is a social initiative to help advance women’s professional growth and economic empowerment through offline and online entrepreneurship education, support and capacity building. It is supported by Facebook Community Leadership Program.

Based on our founder’s experience mentoring and guiding many aspiring and budding women entrepreneurs to start and scale their businesses over the last few years, she felt a pressing need for an initiative focused on localized entrepreneurship education, trainings and capacity building, customized for women. And hence the creation of Femprow, a social enterprise, empowering females to grow professionally and economically.

Founder’s Story

A therapeutic tutor and marketing professional turned tech entrepreneur, Nadia is a strong advocate of women empowerment and has led initiatives to train stay-at-home women to monetize their talents, increasing digital and financial inclusion of women in the entrepreneurial space. She founded Pakistan’s first online marketplace for women, in 2015, facilitating thousands of home-based women entrepreneurs to grow and expand their businesses leveraging technology; solving a big problem common to conservative economies, where women are unable to pursue a full-time career due to family and societal pressures.

During the course of this period working closely with women, personally guiding and mentoring hundreds of aspiring and budding entrepreneurs, Nadia felt a pressing need for an initiative focused on localized entrepreneurship education, training’s and capacity building customized for women in Pakistan.

In 2018, Nadia was selected as a Fellow for Facebook Community Leadership Program, as part of which Facebook selected 115 community leaders from 46 countries with a strong, clear and committed vision for their communities to train, support and fund them to advance their social positive impact.

Testimonials

Sanam Asif

Women Entrepreneurs’ Roundtable Discussion organized by Femprow, was the first platform where I could talk about the challenges I face running a small home-based business. The struggles of fellow entrepreneurs and how they tackle them gave me an insight into how a small business can be turned into something more.

Sanam Rehan

Sometimes we’re tested not to show our weaknesses, but to discover our strengths. That was the main thing which I learned from SheInspires initiative by Femprow. There were such lovely extremely motivational girls from different fields. Thank you Femprow for putting sheer hard work into organizing such initiatives for women.

It was a great experience for me to sharing my story, being selected for the event and then attending the great event focused on women empowerment. It was a great encouragement for ladies who are working from home while at the same time managing the house affairs as well.

I joined Femprow platform to improve my skills, and to manage my business better, and to learn from other entrepreneurs. The first event of Femprow was to bring together experienced and early-stage women from diverse fields to identify the problems faced by businesses and solutions or strategy to overcome them.

I joined Femprow to learn things related to small scale businesses. I got to know about this workshop START. I learned that even for small scale business we need to create our inventory and a lot of other resources in hand. I learned to create action plans for our startup.

While the whole country was busy arguing upon Aurat March. Femprow decided to give a chance to women to share their stories of struggle and success. I was selected to share my story live with the audience, I felt so touched when all the ladies praised me and my story.
