Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative providing small business to women affected by the coronavirus pandemic. At this time it seems that the coronavirus pandemic is out of mind already with no updates or any news from the health sector. However, the pandemic could not be taken for granted because the impact if a poor family is affected is devastating. There is a need to provide support for poor families so that they are able to survive if the coronavirus pandemic affects any of their members. This reporting period we asked friends and supporters to provide small livelihood equipment for women. These equipment are difficult to purchase by women and if they are provided with this support, they will be able to improve their situation. Examples of these equipment are washing machines, farming tools, carpentry and so on, depending on their request and the need. Hoping for your continuing support to this initiative.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances Uy

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings for the New Year and thank you very much for your kind support for our coronavirus women-led small business project. We are very happy that despite our difficulties encountered in 2021 we are still in the midst of helping women who are undertaking small business in order to improve their livelihoods and incomes. This reporting period we are happy to inform you that the fruit wine making project implemented by a women's association was able to win an award from a government agency and they are geared-up for expansion in their business enterprise by the purchase of additional equipment and consumables. One of their difficulties is the purchase of new wine bottles from suppliers. Again thank you very much and hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle France

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative providing support for women entrepreneurs during this time when the coronavirus pandemic is still affecting so many communities and the poor are the most affected. During this reporting period we focus our support to providing farming inputs to women farmers with the aim of improving their incomes while they are mostly at home. Our strategy is the passing-on-the gift type wherein the recipients are requested to pass-on the support to other beneficiaries when they are able. We organized local communities to undertake this system of support for each other and hope that this approach will work and be beneficial to all. This reporting period we are able to provide 7 women with farming inputs ranging from small and large animals and vegetable seeds. Hoping for your continuing support to this important initiative.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances

Dear Friend,

Greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing livelihood support for women doing small business during this Coronavirus pandemic. The problem with the pandemic is real and extremely difficult with our health system being overwhelmed. The need for sustainable sources of income especially at the village level could not be over-emphasized.This reporting period we continue to seek opportunities for women so that they are able to start their livelihood activities. Through your generous gifts we are able to provide livelihood support to 32 women so that they are able to start their ventures. Most of the livelihood projects were into agricultural production as access to food is very much neededduring this time. In the next months we intend to raise our own seeds so that we do not depend on commercial seed sources for supply and in this way we become sustainable. Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances

Turmeric processing

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project on assisting women-led small businesses during this Coronavirus pandemic. This reporting period we choose to support a women's association in their quest to increase their income by the processing of raw agricultural product that otherwise have very little value when sold raw in the market. They are processing turmeric roots into turmeric tea in time for gift-giving this holiday season. They are targeting to partner with large business to utilize their product for their corporate give aways. Our support comprise equipment in the cooking of their product and then packaging advice so that the finished products are marketable. Hoping for your additional support so that we can continue supporting additional enterprises. Thank you very much.

Very sincerely yours,

Mitch
