We work with 1500 beneficiaries who are disabled spread out in three Revenue Units of a District. Most of these people live with less than $1 per day.We have identified 500 women who are capable of starting a small business to support their disabled child or are disabled themselves.With a small amount as less as $250 they can start their own small entreprise to get out of their chronic poverty and earn $3-4 per day. While caring for the child the mother also brings income to the family.
