The LI businesses that have been created were given the training in order to make their business work and help their community grow. Even though they have the training necessary it is important to keep the businesses updated with new ways to make their businesses better.


This microproject will be giving previous LI businesses with the proper tools they need to expand their businesses. This will be done by providing them with additional training that teaches them about updates that are now available and that will help their business.

Long-Term Impact

Develop independent profit-generating businesses that serve as models for growth in surrounding communities. Project beneficiaries fill voids in the local economy while improving their families' health, education and financial stability. Previous leaders have sent their brothers, sisters and children to school, helped invest in new businesses within the community, offered new services to community members such as the disabled, establishing infrastructure for the future growth of Nigeria.
