At Zoora, we support women with different products depending on the community needs.

ZOORA is a community empowerment platform on which women and unemployed youth in village savings and loan associations access digital education in enterprise skills development, smart agriculture, gender, effects of climate change and proper record keeping for a positive attitude towards work and the use of technology.

Zoora designs and delivers digital educational content in financial literacy, enterprise skills development, gender, better agricultural practices and climate change effects leading to concrete behavioural change.
