40% of the Venezuela's households are women, who have to provide income for their families sustainability. Many of these women count on work skills or abilities which might be used to provide funding for their livelihood but do not know the basic financial and/or negotiation tools to put their know-how to work as productive businesses. Should these women be trained adequately, 800 households would be prepared to overcome poverty, providing their homes income, creating jobs for their communities.
The project is based on supporting the target women population at identifying their personal abilities and strengths, communications, finance, budget preparation, intelligent purchases, production and marketing knowledge for them to prepare a business plan using their abilities, teamwork and sales tools for a business presentation facing a financial institution. Closing activities will be trade fairs at their locations enabling them to present and sell their goods to their communities.
Junior Achievement Venezuela plans to provide financial education, business knowledge and entrepreneurship abilities to 800 women located in low income municipalities, as well as the link for initial seed capital provided by an allied bank for them to initiate their businesses thus improving their communities and their quality of life. Direct population: 800 women. Indirect 3200 directly dependable from them. Community improvement: at least 100 new small product or services small entrepreneurs.
