Joyce Banda "is an influential advocate for improving the quality of life in Malawi by empowering thousands of women to become economically self-reliant.

"Frustrated by red tape she encountered as a secretary, Mrs. Banda founded the NABW in order to boost the status of all women - by giving them access to credit, training, information, markets and appropriate technology. So far, NABW has mobilized 15,000 women countrywide, disbursed US$2,000,000 in loans, and trained 12,000 women to run their own businesses. Sixty percent of the women live are rural." [1]
