Challenge

Most of the poor People especially vulnerable women in Zambia live on less than a $ per day and COVID-19 has just worsened the situation. Women are the most affected people in the communities. All the families have been confined in their homes spending the little income which they might have raised from their small business. Therefore, COVI-19 has left families without food, soap and other essential basic needs such as medical bills etc which are cardinal for human survival.

Solution

The project will provide revolving relief fund to many vulnerable women keeping orphans and vulnerable children in Solwezi District of Zambia so that they can recover from income losses as a result of COVID-19. We shall provide both immediate and long term support to the vulnerable women that would enable them continue with their micro entrepreneurship activities and support their children with education and health related. This shall be a revolving fund that will benefit a wider community.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help recover and sustain families from COVID-19 shocks. Micro entrepreneurship is key in attaining local development and improved income at household level especially among vulnerable people. Since this shall be a revolving fund, many people shall benefit and the majority beneficiaries will remain with a capital which they might have lost during the Country's lock down. All the beneficiaries will also be trained in micro business management and marketing etc.
