Summary

In Baraka, South Kivu, DRC; the fish trade is more carried out by women: say in local dialect BYANGULO translate by(google translation problem, it means fish vendors at the auction).The majority of these women is widowed who does not have assets. They are the sales commissionaires. They earn a daily commission of less than US $ 5 PPP. We would like to offer them the opportunity to have small repayable loans, which pay more; because they will be able to realize up to $ 45 of net income per day.

Challenge

In Baraka and its surroundings; there are about 2345 widows women who flee the fighting in their villages, many are victims of rape, their families no longer receive humanitarian assistance; the humanitarian emergency is to help Burundian refugees. They are thus obliged to survive and get treatment, to trade fish by commission: the fishermen give them fish for sale and in the evening they are paid less than 5 USD PPA day, much lower premium. Which proves that they live below the poverty line.

Solution

This project will offer them the opprtinuity of being able to access the capials with which they will be able to exercise the trade of sale of the fish without depending on the fishermen; they will be able to put on their side all the daily benefits estimated at 45 USD per day of net income all charges not included. With this income for each, they will feed the children, pay their schooling, their health care, housing and enable others to learn from their experiences of fighting poverty.

Long-Term Impact

1) 2345 will learn how to manage credits to fight against poverty for the benefit of their dependents in the framework of their schooling, housing, health care, improvement of the diet 2) 2345 will become job changers in their communities, because they will form groups of credit managers in the objectives is to create their own fishing teams in which they will engage 240 males fishermen who will fish to offer them fish for sale (which is an innovation and the culmination final of this project)
