What We Do
Gainful Employement Schemes
42 women have accessed loans and are engaged in small income generating activities in a bid to become self reliant. Africare drafted a Terms of Reference (TOR) for the micro credit which the women signed up to and own. Four training sessions were offered to beneficiaries by a trainer skilled in participatory appraoches. The majority of the beneficiaries are paying up though there still are challenges for those who fall sick just after getting the loans. The service users have mutually agreed on an interest rate and other terms which are favourable to them and the scheme is now holding a waiting list.
