Twenty-one- year old Aiyorworth has empowered over 400 women since starting the Girls’ Power Micro Lending Organisation that supports girls by helping their mothers. The organisation gives women starting capital or money for their existing businesses so that they are able to ensure their daughters’ education with school fees and materials.
