Coca-Cola's 5by20 initiative reaches more than 1.2 million women entrepreneurs

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

The Coca-Cola Company has announced strong progress toward its goal to enable the economic empowerment of 5 million women entrepreneurs across the Coca-Cola value chain by 2020.

Year-end results for 2015 indicate that the initiative, known as 5by20, has reached a total of more than 1.2 million women entrepreneurs across 60 countries since its launch in 2010.

More than 372,000 women entrepreneurs were enabled by 5by20 in 2015, increasing the total number of women participants by 43 percent over the course of the year.

This growth can be attributed primarily to programmes scaling and replicating in the Eurasia- Africa and Asia-Pacific regions.
