Sitting on the rooftop of Gladys’s juice bar in Freetown, I was having an informal chat with some of the women my foundation supports. This wasn’t my first trip to Sierra Leone. I was there for International Women’s Day in March and had spoken then to some of the women.

But this time I got to have a long, in depth conversation with them about the difficulties they have faced as women entrepreneurs and what benefits they get from participating in the country’s first network for women entrepreneurs, which is what the Foundation has helped to set up here.
