Here is a disturbing finding: Some 71% of Black women business owners across America estimate they can’t survive another year under the current pandemic conditions, a new report by payment technology company Visa shows.

To help offset that, the Visa She’s Next Grant Program announced on March 4 will provide eligible Black women-owned businesses across six major U.S. cities a shot to win one of 60, $10,000 grants and a one-year IFundWomen coaching membership.

Ten grant recipients will each come from Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, and Washington, D.C. The effort is geared to address the needs of local entrepreneurs in U.S. cities with the highest concentration of Black-owned businesses and where Black women proprietors face challenges.
