Ivanka Trump is putting together a fund to assist female entrepreneurs in countries around the world, according to a report.
Having consulted with World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim, and with the blessing of her father President Trump, Ivanka Trump's effort would provide financial support to small- and medium-sized enterprises.
"The statistics and results prove that when you invest in women and girls, it benefits both developed and developing economies," she said, according to a Wednesday Axios report. "Women are an enormous untapped resource, critical to the growth of all countries."
The outlet also reported that the World Bank would manage fund.
Ivanka Trump co-authored an op-ed this week with Kim that criticized the world labor force for excluding women. Trump, who worked up to being executive vice president in the Trump Organization and recently an assistant in the White House, attended the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund's spring meetings earlier this month.
A source told Axios that Trump already has commitments from several corporations and countries, including Germany.
Trump attended a G-20 women's summit in Berlin this week for a panel in which she appeared alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
