Summary

Voces Vitales Nicaragua has historically invested in the training of women & girls in order to generate sustainable change. Today as we face the enormous impact of COVID19 on Nicaraguan families, VVN is also providing assistance to the emerging needs for resource-poor and disproportionately affected women. While we are helping unemployed women with emergency food relief, we are also providing them with training to help them discover ways for generating an income to sustain their families.

Challenge

The 2018 socio political crisis created a deep recession in the Nicaraguan economy and generated the loss of over 70,000 formal jobs. With the global onset of COVID19, more sectors of our weakened economy collapsed and a new unemployment rate of 10.3% is moving hundreds of thousands of Nicaraguans into deep poverty. With a collapsed formal economy & no safety nets, families are in desperate need for any opportunities that will allow them to simply afford their daily basic needs: food & shelter.

Solution

Our organization has provided training and mentoring to early-stage women entrepreneurs over the last 12 years. As thousands of women across sectors are loosing minimum-wage jobs, Voces Vitales Nicaragua is harnessing the power of our network and expertise to offer them short-term food relief paired with basic business training. At the end of each cycle we are offering a limited number of micro-grants to help the most motivated ones launch their micro-businesses.

Long-Term Impact

This Voces Vitales project will bring food relief and training to 100 women who lost minimum-wage jobs over the last 3 months, are main home providers and are eager to discover ways to start micro-businesses that will help them generate an income to provide food and well-being for their families. This project will also offer 20 micro grants to help them launch their micro-initiatives.
