Gbawe Entrepreneurs Network with Sinapi Aba Trust, a social financial NGO under the auspices of PAAJAF Foundation, has launched this initiative in Gbawe Community in which sustainable education and welfare projects, micro loans will lead to vast improvements in the lives of the underprivileged and poor people in the Gbawe Community. The vision is to improve the living standards of the poor people through business management ideas and the spirit of entrepreneurship and provision of micro funding.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The Community of Gbawe is plagued with widespread poverty and illiteracy. As a result of low income levels quality health and quality education cannot be afforded by majority of the inhabitants. If the vision of improving the living standards of the people is to be realized then business management ideas and the spirit of entrepreneurship and provision of micro funding must be accessible to the people with ease.
How will this project solve this problem?
The Gbawe Entrepreneurs Network works as follows: PAAJAF would be responsible for creating the platform for the poor to have access to cash loans from Sinapi Aba Trust. Will also be giving a product loans (In-Kind Items - clothing, shoes, and other small household items) to the networkers to trade in. Each GEN member attends a weekly literacy education. PAAJAF will support the poor women and underprivileged youth with start-up capital. PAAJAF needs your support to reach out to our target group.
Potential Long Term Impact
PAAJAF would like to underline the fact that the Gbawe Entrepreneurs Network (GEN) model would be good for Gbawe, as it is simple and straightforward and treats all participants equally. In addition, GEN creates job opportunities for particular individuals at particular times, while securing access to the necessary capital for and literacy skills for this individual. Also, household conflicts and fears will be reduced and as a result unemployment will be lessened and more jobs will be created.
