Financial expert for Women on wings since August 2014

Years ago I read about Women on Wings in a local newspaper and I was deeply touched by the ambitious goal and the approach of using business knowledge to reach that goal. I kept the article on my desk, so I would not forget. I knew that one day, when the time was right, I would become one of their experts. The right time turned out to be summer 2014.

I am convinced that we should help women by making them independent and autonomous in a sustainable way. Don’t only bring money; that will temper their own initiatives. By sharing knowledge we can bring about lasting change.

It is my privilege to share my knowledge of the financial world with Indian social entrepreneurs so as to create more jobs for women in rural India and change their livelihoods. Working together towards a common goal gives me a lot of energy and is really inspiring.
