Challenge

The coronavirus pandemic has caused misery to so many and the most affected are women and girls. Sources of incomes especially in the rural areas have dried-up and food is getting scarce. Support services either coming from the government or the private sector is stretched to the limit. There is still no end in sight to the resolution of the pandemic and return to normalcy and there is a need to explore possibilities in order to earn income.

Solution

We will provide funds for struggling small businesses affected by the pandemic or support new micro ventures which is able to tap opportunities caused by community quarantines and lock-downs. One example is producing much-needed food such as vegetables and poultry which is in great demand during this time by neighbors needing food. Another example is the supply of face masks, production of home-made soap and many more.

Long-Term Impact

Improving the economic situation of women and girls by they themselves producing products for sale in the market during this trying times or reviving affected small-time businesses will ease the economic hardship that they are facing and eventually will result to communities surviving the pandemic.
