This project is for providing micro finance to create sustainable livelihood for HIV/AIDS positive women, who are most in need of financial services.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Many HIV/AIDS positive women are widows, vulnerable and having with HIV/AIDS positive/affected children. Their health condition is such that they are unable to do hard work for their livelihood and they are in need of financial services for their basic needs such as shelter, clothes and nutrition food for compensating the heavy dose of ART treatment for them and their children. Due to poverty and dysfunctional family condition they are not able to provide basic needs for them and their children.

How will this project solve this problem?

The micro loan and skill training we provide to make a proven change for the target women's sustainable livelihood. And also we provide services to these women, age 21 - 45 with an update technology skill training through which they can start a small business by which they can generate more money for their sustainable livelihood.

Potential Long Term Impact

Through Self Help Groups and micro loans, women learn update technology skills for creating economic development and sustainability, a network of support, and financial independence for the first time in their lives.
