Poor women micro-enterprise development-Indonesia



Helping 150 poor Indonesian women in 14 villages to help themselves out of poverty by running a 3-day course with their local NGO teaching basic business skills like accounting and product packaging.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

35 million people in Indonesia live below the poverty line with little or no income. Indonesia is a beautiful country where both Christians and Muslims live side by side. Take Murni for example, a vulnerable woman living on an income below $2 a day. In poor villages simple illnesses like diarrhea can be fatal. When a woman has an income she can pay for medical care.

How will this project solve this problem?

150 families will be trained in basic business skills.

Potential Long Term Impact

150 poor families will take the first step out of poverty.
