According to the Kaufmann Foundation, a US$2 billion private US non-profit focusing on education and entrepreneurship, women are only a third as likely to get access to equity financing through angel investments or venture capital.

The International Finance Corporation estimates that leaves a financing gap for women-owned SMEs in developing countries of $285bn.

Gone are the days when MENA women worked only at education institutes, hospitals and government institutions. MENA women of today have assumed prominent roles as decision-makers, bankers, journalists, judges, lawyers, media figures and scientific researchers. In fact, the number of women holding ministerial-level positions and other roles in public life has increased significantly in the last decade.

Within MENA, women from the UAE seem to have achieved the most. Nearly one-fourth of the 100 most powerful Arab women listed by Arabian Business consisted of Emiratis. They were followed by women from Kuwait, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia.

Women in the UAE and elsewhere around the region are an unshakeable economic force, with assets worth $385 billion (Dh1.4 trillion) managed by female-led small and medium enterprises.
