According to the information given to People Matters, P&G through this initiative will source $30 million through this initiative over the next three years.

Al Rajwani, MD & CEO, P&G India Sub Continent said, “Investing in women entrepreneurs and women-owned businesses makes sense for the economy, the community and for us. Our initiative is in line with the Indian Government’s efforts to empower women economically. By committing a percentage of our spending to women-owned businesses, we’re not only doing the right thing for the company, but we’re also being socially responsible. The impact of our spending with women-owned businesses helps to stimulate economic growth in communities who are often overlooked, which in turn promotes job creation and further opportunities.”

P&G would also be organizing conferences across the country to address the issues which are faced by women entrepreneurs and also the solutions to tackle the same.
