Summary

Enable a group of 10 women, composed of widows, single moms, and HIV/AIDS victims, and divorcees, living in the poorest area of Dar-es-Salam City in Tanzania to feed their children.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The majority of women in Dar-Es-Salaam discussed how painful it is for them to send their children to school each day with no shoes on their feet or see their children drop out of school because sickness. They do not have access to capital. The only recourse available to poor women is collecting plastic bottles at the dump, an area rampant with contagious diseases, which they sell for small change. EEA empowers struggling women to access capital, restore their dignity, and feed their children

How will this project solve this problem?

These women use their loans to establish and grow their businesses. They sell all their merchandise retail, food, etc for profit to repay their loans and supply needs to their family. Financial education is provided to these women

Potential Long Term Impact

Women provide a family with basic needs like food, vegetables and fruits as nutritious supplements for the children, a net to fight malaria, education and healthcare, reduce dependency on foreign aid. This "seed" multiplies to benefit other women.
