After the major success of the spring project LI has vastly improved it's mechanics and welding programs.This fall program will provide previous LI businesses with additional training that will update them with the proper tools that will expand their electrician and carpentry shops. This will allow them to better help their communities and more efficiently.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The LI businesses that have been created were given the training in order to make their business work and help their community grow. Even though they have the training necessary it is important to keep the businesses updated with new ways to make their businesses better.
How will this project solve this problem?
This microproject will be giving previous LI businesses with the proper tools they need to expand their businesses. This will be done by providing them with additional training that teaches them about updates that are now available and that will help their business.

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Create 150 Jobs in two years in Northern Nigeria. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
