The real vision of WIMI is to motivate women to reach women. While WIMI aims to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom, part of the goal is to strengthen and sharpen women so that they might be a greater blessing to their local communities and churches. Leadership training is conducted for women ministers to lead others into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Other ministry outreaches include, but not limited to Prison Outreach, Crusades, Youth Programs, Intercessory Prayers, Business Trainings, and Charity Ministries among others.

The 20 qualified WIMI Sierra Leone, Bo women were rigorously vetted and had completed the PeFoHD Financial Literacy Training including Business Management Skills, Money Management, Banking and Savings Scheme. Their respective businesses include sales of staple foodstuff like fish, rice, palm-oil, water etc.

The distribution of the total amount of $2,000.00 funding depended on the type of lucrative businesses and qualified guarantors through WIMI Women Leaders, including Dr. Lauretta Will Sillah, WIMI International Coordinator in Sierra Leone, Rev. Garmai Jallah of Liberia and Rev. Dr. Saratu Adjei. Women have been previously financially empowered through micro-financing in Liberia, Ghana and now Sierra Leone.
