Challenge

Nigeria has now 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 them could barely afford one square 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. By renting the stores, equipping them with marketable products, and providing training on business and financial literacy skills; this project not only empowers widows for improved livelihood, but also to make sound financial decisions and grow their capital. The widows also open savings accounts with support fund to feed in the first one month to allow the business take off successfully.

Long-Term Impact

This Women Empowerment Project (WE Project) will establish business for 30 widows to enable them 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.
