Challenge

Nigeria has overtaken India as the country with the largest number of extreme poor people with about 87 million Nigerians living in extreme poverty according to 2018 report by Brookings Institution. Of those living in poverty, about 15 million of them are widows (FIDA, 2015). Some of the widows could barely afford one meal a day, with their children malnourished and prone to diseases. Without any financial support, they go hungry most days and are forced to withdraw their kids from school.

Solution

WealthyGen provides better life for these widows by establishing sustainable livelihood activities for them. Through the Women Empowerment Project (WE Project), WealthyGen sets up a fully equipped enterprise for each widow and provides training on business and financial literacy skills so they can successfully run the business and manage their money. The WE Project also opens savings accounts for each widow with initial deposit to feed their family so the business can take off successfully.

Long-Term Impact

This Women Empowerment Project (WE Project) establishes businesses or any income generating activities for widows to enable them to earn their own income to support and empower their families, give their kids sound education, and break the cycle of poverty. The WE Project not only benefits the women, but also their children, their entire family, and the society at large.
