 Pānui August 2020
Now that we are all back into our mahi, we must remember to stay vigilant and safe in our personal bubbles.

We welcome the reconnection of peoples, places and you whilst we look ahead to a brighter future. With the mention of the future, MWDI is pleased to share our happenings for the month of August.
CEO Corner
Tēnā koe!

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to keep up-to-date with Māori Women's Development Inc.

We understand that business is tough and the challenges that we faced during lockdown gave us the room for new opportunities to adapt and better understand the needs of our clients so that we can continue to offer a range of programmes and services that support growth and development in business.

July was busy with preparation for the delivery of our programmes and online wānanga scheduled for August. Our attendance at the China Business Summit and APEC 2020 hosted by Chile (held online) provided us with the opportunity to share about the work we do with our wāhine and network to further assist our clients.

Due to the effects of COVID-19 we have seen financial institutions continue to review the criteria for their lending services which can make things difficult for businesses to apply for lending. Our MWDI Business Loans service is now open and we are accepting applications for MWDI Business Loans.

Our 3-day business wānanga MWDI HineBoss™ was recently held in Auckland and enthusiastically received by participants. This wānanga is designed to support your pathway towards a successful business and provide you with knowledge to confidently carry out the operation and growth of your business.

As we look to the future we want to encourage and support our rangatahi in their learning and understanding of business by providing interactive programmes for rangatahi. MWDI Te Kora is a fun, interactive way for rangatahi to explore the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and was held recently in Whakatane.

If you are interested in any of our programmes we would encourage you to contact us to discuss your participation or visit our new look website www.mwdi.co.nz

We wish you every success on your business journey and look forward to supporting you.
