Filomena stated that WEBC has indeed come a long way since 2013 with less than 20 members to now close to 200 members.

WEBC initially relied on the FCEF Secretariat when it began but they now have their own Secretariat.

Filomena says that she is excited for what the future holds for women entrepreneurs in the country, especially with WEBC leading the way in supporting women across all sectors from the informal to micro and corporate level women leaders.
