MICRO-FINANCING AND SMALL BUSINESSES

This program involves itself with poverty reduction and women empowerment especially vulnerable women who have gone through so many difficulties in life and have no support whatsoever. We give them each USD20 to USD100 that helps them carry out small businesses like selling bread, vegetables, fruits, fish, clothes, shoes etc. For some we give them money that they invest in farming, pig farming, tailoring, carpentry etc.

Since we began, many families improved their lives, those who were living in grass thatched houses that are associated with poverty are now living under iron-sheet houses, some have been able to send their children to school, some can take care of basic health care needs, clothing and food.

Malnutrition rate has greatly reduced courtesy of the program and the women involved in prostitution due to difficult lives have had their ways of life changed for the better.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
