Micro loans for businesses of low income women

Thanks to our donors through GlobalGiving since July 2019, 6 more women in Eskisehir were able to get loans to invest in their micro businesses. The business supported included painting, knitting, selling clothing from home, selling cosmetics, producing wooden decorative items. While one of them was getting her 3rd loan, others were getting 6th, 7th,8th, 12th loans. The income that women earn from these businesses are, for most of them, the primary source of income. They mention that the loans provided to them are very important in sustaining and improving their businesses and this is the only source that they can borrow from.  

Since June 2015, KEDV raised a total of USD10,149 through 147 donations through GlobalGiving and disbursed loans to 31 low income women for their micro businesses and gave financial literacy training to 15 women in addition to these 31. We still have a long way to reach our target of USD 70.000 to be able to support 200 low income women entrepreneurs. We would be grateful if you could continue to spread the word and share the project link in your networks.

Warm regards…
