We help people to help themselves out of debt and poverty. With basic business training, interest free loans and simple business coaching.
The first business we help start was a Banh Mi cart.
This couple have to sell 29.4 Banh Mi every day to cover their living costs and make a profit.
Laundry – One of the ladies we work with had a problem. Her house always flooded during the rainy season and there has been no running water in her home (of 18 people). The home didn’t have a registered address and the people living there had little money and no work.
She decided she wanted to start a laundry business, to help the people there have work, common purpose, and to pay for the upkeep of the home. So we raised the money to help her do that.
The home is now has a registered address, which means the people who live in the home can get better medical treatment and access to other benefits previously unavailable to them.
Handicraft and handmade cards – We have recently expanded our handmade card business to employ four more people.
We sell our cards at local Christmas fayres, here and abroad to raise money for our projects.
