Success Stories


Walmart is helping equip women with skills to build a better life.

It starts in a kitchen in Guatemala. A retail factory in Bangladesh. A peach farm in China. All around the world, Walmart has been helping equip women with skills to build a better life, and we’ve committed to do even more. These success stories are examples of the impact we hope to make with our Global Women’s Economic Empowerment Initiative. Take a moment to learn about some of the real women whose lives have already been changed.
