SEHER, a credit education program launched by the Women Entrepreneurship Platform (WEP) and TransUnion CIBIL, will empower women entrepreneurs in India with financial literacy content and business skills, helping them to access the financial tools they need to drive further growth and create employment in the country’s economy.

SEHER programme: 

• The programme is part of WEP’s Financing Women Collaborative (FWC), a first-of-its-kind initiative aimed at accelerating access to finance for women entrepreneurs. 

• It will facilitate their access to financial tools crucial for business growth and employment creation.

• The programme includes personalised resources on financial literacy, emphasizing the importance of building a strong credit history and CIBIL score.

Women Entrepreneurship Platform (WEP)

• Women Entrepreneurship Platform (WEP), incubated in NITI Aayog in 2018 as an aggregator platform that transitioned as a public-private partnership in 2022 to build a comprehensive ecosystem supporting women entrepreneurs across India. 

• WEP aims at empowering women entrepreneurs by overcoming information asymmetry and providing continuum of support across different pillars — entrepreneurship promotion, access to finance; market linkages; training and skilling; mentoring and networking and business development services. 

• For this, WEP adopts a wide array of interventions with a focus on convergence and collaboration with existing stakeholders.
