Certification is a review process that ensures that a business is actually owned, controlled, and operated by women. When a business is certified, it gives them access to the corporate supply chain, capacity building workshops and opportunities to connect with and learn from other certified companies on key success factors and strategies. For a business to become certified, it must be at least 51% owned, controlled and managed by women, have been operational for at least 1 year, owned by a Zimbabwean citizen or legal resident and pay an annual certification fee.
