Together we can empower individuals in Africa who are interested in creating small businesses. We will provide small loans for business investments as well as training and coaching to entrepreneurs in the rural areas of the Maritime Region in Togo. In February 2021, we reached our initial funding goal of USD 10,000 for the 2020-2021 phase of the programme, and we have now increased the target to support more villagers to become self-sustaining.
During 2020, 117 women and 2 men were enrolled in our programme supporting business owners. They are today operating their own business in a more sustainable way and are better equipped to support their families with school and health-care fees. Below, you can find a mix of pictures on the variety of products sold by our partners in Togo. Our local support team is in weekly contact with the loan-takers to help them address challenges, understand their needs and ambitions and empower their businesses. During 2021 we will scale up the loan to those who will benefit as well as support new business managers. 38 women have applied to become part of the programme and now the next step for Action10 is to raise funds and support the growing and new entrepreneurs.
