[LISTEN] Sizakele Marutlulle opens up about challenges of women in business

CEO and Founder at Marutlulle and Co, Sizakele Marutlulle, is one of 300 global thinkers and innovators who will be speaking at the Oxford Said Business School's annual workshop titled Business Fights Poverty.

The event, which takes place later this month, is a platform for participants to share their expertise and help find solutions to pressing real-world issues.

Marutlulle joined Azania to share some of her insights on women in business and the challenge of funding.

Entrepreneurship is twice as hard for women because the things we have to negotiate, half the time they are not even based on reality. The first thing is this question of how are you going to balance your work life and your home life....

Sizakele Marutlulle, CEO and Founder at Marutlulle and Co

The other ones are just real policy and structural impediments.

Lack of access to opportunity. Access to markets, access to people who will bet on us without needing us to prove anything.

Sizakele Marutlulle, CEO and Founder at Marutlulle and Co

If there is lack of access to financial awareness, banks, your branches are shut on Sundays. Why don't you use them as destinations to offer free financial training to women if you really want to bet on entrepreneurs.
