Income Generating Activities for Widows

Status: Stalled

The community of Kabondo would like to develop a micro-loan program for women and widows in an effort to increase income and provide the means to support the many widows and orphans. The aim is to develop a revolving or merry-go-round fund that would allow a small group of women (to start) to use towards income generating activities. The women would be assisted with business plan development, business management and other areas of running a small business. Once the loan is repaid, the funds would be used for other women in the community.
