Download the RISE Report

RISE is a joint initiative from Bixie, Catholic Relief Services, and UBx (Unionbank) to empower women-owned SMEs with cash grants, insurance and investments to start and grow their businesses. 

Through this ground-breaking project, women access opportunities  via Bixie’s Learn-to-Earn platform by successfully answering financial literacy games and quizzes,  and they use this knowledge to access grants, insurance and investment opportunities from licensed financial partners.

 

If you’re a woman-owned SME looking for support, or a Corporate Partner, United Nations, INGO, or Financial Institution that wants to see women RISE, join us here, and be part of a movement.

Dunder-Kruger Effect v. Imposter Syndrome
27% of RISE women are financially literate according to global standards, as compared to 31% of women worldwide and 33% of men worldwide. Despite our high knowledge, only 1% of women invest

All the Ladies (Not) Independent

20% of RISE women provided account details controlled

by a male in her household

DeFi Ready

Within 1 hour of launch, 80% of RISE women were able to tackle our Web3-based Learn-to-Earn platform to acquire the requisite utility tokens to unlock investments. This flies in the face of assumptions that women– especially low-income earners– don’t understand DeFi

Singles Tax

Married Women score higher on financial literacy than single women. This needs urgent redress since single women are solely responsible for their financial security

Watching and taking down notes regarding tips on handling my finances, even how to be efficient with every day chores as a wife, a mother and friend to people in my surroundings. Being one of the member of Bixie Beneficiary show me that there are things that I can still do despite of my condition. I'm so great full to Mam Rhia and the Bixie founder for showing all the possibility what a woman can do and contribute to our society.

Women Need Investments to RISE

Hindi madali sa umpisa ang lahat pero kapag gusto mo at mahal mo ang ginagawa mo magiging maayos at madali ang lahat. Samahan lang talga ng sipag at tiyaga at wag makakalimot sa itaas humingi lagi ng gabay sa Kanya. Naniniwala ako na kung hindi din dahil sa Kanya ay hindi Ako matututo talaga.

Ang matuto ng tamang paggamit ng pera at kung paano ka makaipon kahit magsimula sa maliit na halaga.

Naniniwala kasi ako sa ginagawa ko na hindi lang ako ang matutulungan kundi kasama na rin ang kapwa ko. Dahil sa mga aral at katuruan na dala dala ko sa kanila, sa pagtuturo kung gaanu kahalaga ang pag iimpok lalong lalo na kapag sa oras ng di natin inaasahan. At happy ako sa ginagawa kong ito. At siyempre looking forward ako sa mga magagandang endings nito. Kasi nakakatulong na ako sa iba sa pagpapalawak ng kaalaman nila about savings, how to be insured at ako rin ay napa practice ko ito lagi.

Na experience ko na po ang maubusan ng budget at maghanap ng makakatulong ngunit walang malapitan kahit isa. Expected ko po na mas matututo akong mag-ipon, mapalago ang business at marami pang natututunan sa Bixie o sa Rise project.
