In conjunction with International Women’s Day, Facebook has shared an infographic of the latest Future of Business report – a collaborative effort with the World Bank and the OECD. The survey covers 90+ million small businesses on Facebook across the globe – one of the widest, most global surveys of SMBs ever conducted.

In 95 countries surveyed, nearly 39 percent of people identifying aad owners or managers of SMBs on Facebook are women. Over 81 percent women-owned SMBs state social media is helpful to their business.

The fact is: when women do better, communities and economies do better, too. Women are an integral part of bringing communities together. Successful women in business drive economic and social growth.

In Malaysia, 90 percent of female business owners on Facebook also find social media helpful in their business. Malaysian women business owners also benefit from the role of community and mentorship. Nearly three in four say that they have a role model, of which seven out of 10 say that their role model is a woman.

It’s not all a bed of roses, though. Women business owners on Facebook in Malaysia still face funding challenges, with over four in 10 citing that they bootstrap their business with personal savings and less than one in five state that they currently have a bank loan or line of credit.
