Young Women in Africa: Agents of Economic Growth and Transformation By 2030

The “Young Women in Africa: Agents of Economic Growth and Transformation” report was commissioned by the Mastercard Foundation to gain insights into young women’s growth and potential contribution to Africa’s economy. The study, conducted by McKinsey and Company, assesses the economic impact of young women on Africa’s GDP, identifies sectors that present opportunities for work and entrepreneurship for them, and highlights key constraints that need to be addressed to enable young women to significantly increase their productivity and contribution to Africa’s economic growth by 2030.
