Challenge

The Community of Gbawe is plagued with widespread poverty and illiteracy. As a result of low income levels quality health and quality education cannot be afforded by majority of the inhabitants. If the vision of improving the living standards of the people is to be realized then business management ideas and the spirit of entrepreneurship and provision of micro funding must be accessible to the people with ease.

Solution

The Gbawe Entrepreneurs Network works as follows: PAAJAF would be responsible for creating the platform for the poor to have access to cash loans from Sinapi Aba Trust. Will also be giving a product loans (In-Kind Items - clothing, shoes, and other small household items) to the networkers to trade in. Each GEN member attends a weekly literacy education. PAAJAF will support the poor women and underprivileged youth with start-up capital. PAAJAF needs your support to reach out to our target group.

Long-Term Impact

PAAJAF would like to underline the fact that the Gbawe Entrepreneurs Network (GEN) model would be good for Gbawe, as it is simple and straightforward and treats all participants equally. In addition, GEN creates job opportunities for particular individuals at particular times, while securing access to the necessary capital for and literacy skills for this individual. Also, household conflicts and fears will be reduced and as a result unemployment will be lessened and more jobs will be created.
