Explain your idea in details:

She Owns it is an Ecommerce ( www.Apnidukkanonline.com ) initiative that will see the number of women in Ecommerce grow at national level. Our objective is to: Enable women in Pakistan to be able to use E-Commerce to set up or expand their businesses through E-Commerce. At household level we will prioritise in targeting both mother and daughter into an online business. 1. We will do this by creating an Ecommerce platform that will enable women to set up their independent online stores with their own domain at a click of a button. 2. We will create a support programme that will engage, train and support women to set up or expand their businesses through the Ecommerce platform. Our holistic support programme will target all key challenges women encounter in Pakistan to push for better uptake and sustainability of their businesses. 3. The E-commerce platform will also be used on commercial basis to generate income to sustain the programme. 4. Additional support through partners including microfinancing Pakistan is the 6th largest country by population and with one of the largest youth bugle in the world, our economic indicators still present a bleak picture. We rank 144 out of 145 at Gender Gap Index, 143 at Economic index and 135 at the Education Index as per the World Economic Forum report 2015. Looking back at the figures from previous 10 years, we can see Pakistan has been at the same position. Women in Pakistan face additional challenges including cultural, religious and access, more so with 48% literacy rate complicates the situation further. This programme will be able to help women become economically independent and connect with the world to improve their economic conditions. Thousands of women will benefit from free trainings, start up support and business advice over many years to come.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Encouraging women entrepreneurship will also address challenges such as malnutrition of children. According to, the National Nutrition Survey nearly 50% of children and 60% of women in Pakistan are severely under nourished. Malnutrition of children is also a reason for high absence and dropout rate from schools particularly in the rural areas. We can see that an economically strong woman will affect the development of society in several ways. In the first phase of the programme, our target are women in Urban and semi urban areas who already have micro businesses established or aspire to establish one. The programme will then be expanded to women in rural areas with highest poverty rate. During the first year of programme, we will target to work with 500 women and expand as the social enterprise starts to generate income. Annual targets will be set based on expected income. Evaluation of success is key to programme development in the long term. The Ecommerce platform will be able to provide the statistics to monitor increase in income of supported women and also from where the most orders are being placed which will also help with their future business planning. Other tools such as regular feedback, video diaries will be created to measure and customer feedback will be recorded to measure real time impact and improvement required.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

The programme will follow the following implementation plan: a. Awareness raising campaign:  A campaign to engage women in the targeted area will be initiated. The campaign will include disseminating information through various platforms including marketing through social media, local newspapers, radio, mass SMS, local cable networks and door to leafleting.  The aim is to inform all women who could benefit from the initiative. b. Needs assessment & support plan:  After completing the registration process, women will go through a detailed needs assessment by trained business advisors. The needs assessment will identify skills gap, and challenges women are facing to setting up or expanding their businesses. A plan will be developed that covers all the support that will be provided through PAGE or partners. c. Setting up of online store: women with existing businesses will be helped to set up online stores through the Ecommerce platform. Women will be trained on how t0 display their products and on marketing techniques d. Training:  various training workshops will be delivered by established entrepreneurs related to business development and management. e. Mentoring: mentoring will be provided by our business advisors and established entrepreneurs to guide  women on ongoing basis. f. Call helpline: A phone helpline will provide advice & guidance on business related matters including tax, banking etc Women from poor backgrounds will be eligible to access the free service for 6 months, for further support from the programme women will be offered to take up paid membership for sustainability of the programme. To achieve sustainability, the Ecommerce platform will be offered on commercial as well on reasonable rates to continue income generation. Partnerships will be developed with start up incubators and organisations running livelihoods programmes and women business chambers. Initial financing will be sourced through generating funds through donor network.

Your profile

I am 33, a social entrepreneur by heart and strongly believe that social entrepreneurship is the model to move forward with if work has to be done on social issues through sustainable solutions. This is what I learnt at the age of 16 when I was encouraged by my mother to get involved in her organisation in Pakistan that supported women in business by connecting them to the right places, I saw lives being changed, and women earning good money who had never thought they can ever do that. That experience strengthened my belief in women education and economic empowerment. At the age of 18 I had the opportunity to set up my own social enterprise "Inspired Sisters" in Manchester, UK. The Social enterprise that got started in one small room with 3 loaned PC's grew to become a hub where women could access all types of development opportunities to become economically active. it helped over 3000 women to train and get into sustainable employment. My methodology is that a solution exist to every problem we just need to be looking in the right place. For 9 years I lead the organisation through various growth challenges and was recognised through a number of awards. After 9 years of working in the UK as a single mother, I was ready for more challenge and made the biggest decision of moving to Pakistan to help with education and economic reforms. Seeing the level of poverty here and the challenges girls and women are facing, I realise the importance of providing solutions that can work. The only quality I believe I have is, that I never give up regardless of the type of challenge. I know you can never go wrong with the cocktail of right intentions and hard work.

Dear Resiliant Entrepreneur,

It's the end of the competition, I want to urge you to not leave this community without the contact (email especially) of as many other entrepreneurs on this platform. You never can tell what your further conversations may produce.

It's the power of networking and leverage I'm talking about...

Hello fellow passenger,

You might have heard the famous song "What I've done" by Linkin park. The lyrics have been beautifully carved by the late singer Chester Bennington. The song covers the ways in which our so called development has helped only a handful of the upper society members, whereas people are still living in poverty.

We have a great platform here which is urging super brains from around the world to come together and collaborate with their ideas and help make this world a better place to live in. You have been a part of this community and I congratulate you on your effort that you have put in.

Thanks once again and all the best for the future

Comrades,
In this fight for a sustainable future, what we need is innovation; something which is not necessarily new, but which makes us look at things from a different angle.

I believe this is one of the major motives of this community which we are a part of. Taking one step together hand in hand towards our goal is the only way we can achieve it.

So I wish you the very best in this endeavour of yours and hope to see you together in the new tomorrow

Hello,
Being a part of India's well known Entrepreneurship Cell of the most prestigious engineering college in India, I have interacted with many startup enthusiasts, have got to know how they think and what are some qualities that set them apart from the ones who are not able to see their idea through. Reading through your idea, I have realised that your idea has that spark which can help it become a successful venture. Coupled with its aim to help the society achieve its goals sustainably, your idea can be something quite helpful for the same.

But before it's implementation, you need to do a "pre-mortem" check on how it can fail. This would prepare you for any uncalled-for circumstances and help you prepare for them accordingly.

Lastly, I would like you to have a look at our idea, GreenSpace, and share your views about the same.

Regards,
Team GreenSpace.

Hi,
After going through your idea, I firmly believe that you can successfully convert it to an executable project and help the society grow in a sustainable manner. I wish you the best for the same.

I would really appreciate if you could go through my idea as well(follow this link https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/12/5961/comments). Our idea deals with covering an otherwise unused rooftop of a building with green plants, and using that space for a multitude of activities. This would have various positive effects on the environment and also the society in general.

Hi fajer,

Great to learn about "She Owns It" and the passion to have to impact girls and women in Pakistan. Congratulations for the great strides you have made before and wishing you all the success in this new project! Quite interesting to read your new project concept.

Cheers!

August 18, 2017 12:39

Hello,
I invite you kindly to comment my idea Path To Knowledge. I would be glad to hear your advice. I have written this message after I commented almost all ideas and projects and probably yours too. I am deeply sorry if this message bothered you, but everyone on this platform wants to go to the finals with his/her idea and makes all it is possible to get there. Maybe not all the actions are fair. Some participants copies the same meaningless message and paste it to all ideas. I just do marketing. Again, I am sorry if this message disturbed you.
Kindest regards,

This is a very impressive idea and it will surely be beneficial for all the young minds looking for an opportunity. Congratulations for all your efforts and for your project.

Hy
It is so good to see someone caring like you for those at home.those women who sit at home and raise us needs to be cared for.Ur idea will really help them a lot.all you need to do is make sure you make them that you are there by marketing on platforms that they will know about them.the ones which they use the most like their phones,television,etc.
I wish you all the best

August 9, 2017 12:42

Hi Fajer,

Awesome idea you have. Online marketing is a great way to improve businesses and profits as well. The e-commerce platform will do a lot good.
My question is basically this, how do you intend to beat the competition in the e-commerce industry so as to make people patronize the products of these women? You know patronage is what brings the sales and accruing profit...

All the best.
Seth

August 9, 2017 08:31

It is a good idea and I like that you have a fully grown strategy to implement this project. I hope you will, and I ask you if you want to expand this project in another countries. I am sure that there are a lot of women who need this kind of help.
Best regards,
Andrei

June 19, 2017 22:52

Dear Sheher Bano, thank you so much for your comment. You have highlighted very correctly. There are number of issues women are facing in that needs addressing. Low Literacy rate, cultural and religious barriers and access to opportunities are the top issues that needs addressing. The women who badly needs help are the ones who are the furthest away from urbanisation. Reaching out to them and engaging them is not going to be an easy job, regardless of the intervention. To answer your questions: Yes Pakistan Alliance for Girls Education is a not for profit Organisation.
At PAGE we believe in holistic approach to addressing problems. Providing literacy and numeracy skills is an integral part of all our initiatives. With hardly 48% literacy rate in women, we realise that without teaching basic skills we can not support the women to grow away from poverty and gender issues they are challenged with.
As far the mindset is concerned. This is most difficult issue to deal with. Its not something that will change overnight. We have another initiative called the Aim High.(www.aimhigh.org.pk). The purpose of aim high is to highlight positive female role models in schools, in universities and in schools. We want to work right at the foundation stage to empower our girls and their mother through the programme. Creating community champions is also very crucial. We are slowly moving in to rural areas so we can work on changing the culture that restricts women engagement. my aim is to bring together partners and develop a number of initiatives that deals with advocacy, education and entrepreneurship. please do visit our website www.page.org.pk for more information on our work.

June 15, 2017 13:18

Dear Aseel, Thank you very much for your comment and appreciation.
We have been lucky in Pakistan in terms of access to Internet in rural areas. The government of Pakistan has done quite a lot of work to ensure availability of high speed internet throughout Pakistan. Use of smart phones has also extensively increased due to availability of 3G and 4G and availability of smart phones by local companies. This makes the implementation of the project very possible.
We want to empower women economically so they are capable of dealing with other problems such as nutrition health education etc. Through our experience of working with the target group we know that being educated and economically independent is the key to resolving a number of issues women and societies are facing.
Also we work through partners who can provide support and services that we are unable to such as microfinancing or free healthcare.

PAGE is Pakistan Alliance for Girls Education. It is a locally registered Trust. She owns it is an initiative of PAGE.

I hope that answers your question. Any further feedback and suggestions are very welcome

June 15, 2017 12:13

Hello Dear Fajer!

Very brilliant idea that should be implemented in the whole world I guess not only Pakistan.. but I have a question

How will food reach target people in rural areas? I mean people in remote areas don't have access to Internet isn't it?

Is it only poverty and malnutrition your are resolving?

Also, I can see from your pictures something called Page is this the same as She owns it ?

Best wishes!

June 14, 2017 10:24

Hi fajer
Your idea of women empowerment is very brilliant and encouraging.However I have some questions about the implementation of the project as I m interested in knowing about it a little more.
how are you going to tackle the problems that are being faced by rural women's who are not even allowed to breath freely.
In Pakistan literacy rate is very low and same goes for gender equality issue so how are you going to change the mindset of people in those areas and how are you going to help them set their online business.
Is your organization a non-profit organization?

June 13, 2017 08:53

Hi Fajer , Nice to see a lady boosting eCommerce. As eCommerce business growing rapidly in Pakistan, it will help both house wives as well as young female entrepreneurs to sell their products with their name. I think the domain name thing is unique in your idea in Pakistan. Best of luck.

June 5, 2017 19:53

Hi fajer,

It's a really good idea and a great initiative towards women empowerment. Can you tell me that how you would be able to do the marketing of the products made by these women's

Regards
Shuhra

Excellent project, we need much more such projects to promote and support women entrepreneurs.
In Pakistan women are behind and there is a need for focused programmes to help them. This project fulfils that need and is easily replicable.

All the best with the project.

May 19, 2017 17:14

This is an excellent idea for women economic empowerment that will bring a positive change at the family, community and country level.

In the target areas in cities there may be less challenges, but the real challenges would need to be addressed for the target groups in rural areas, women living in men dominated set ups, cultural restrictions on mobility, very low literacy rate, limited knowledge and access to computer, etc.
I'm sure you would address all these and other aspects while refining.

Hope the project will measure its results through the real change made "number of businesses started online" rather than traditionally .... number of trainings or workshops conducted or beneficiaries reached, etc. It doesn't need to be a big figure, even few would be great achievement that could be multiplied.
Best of luck.

Thank you Ifedili for your support. I m hoping we can develop this programme into a national Entrepreneurship support programme for women. it should achieve two objectives. 1: Help women expand their businesses through E-Commerce 2: Use the income generated for sustainability of this programme and other much needed initiatives for Girls Education. please do give me further feedback in terms of how you think this can be improved. much appreciated
