Challenge

Helping the poor rural women with HIV/AIDS to break the chains of dependence. By empowering and improving their opportunities to access skills and revolving fund to enable them attain self-reliance through setting up their individual profitable micro business to generate income. Formal credit institutions deem these women with credit risks because they lack collateral consequently they have no access to business loans. We plan to provide services to 100 poor women with HIV/AIDS.

Solution

We are based on group lending methodology where 5 women form a borrowing group, but each woman has her own business to run. BIDE issues loans of $100-$600.Business counseling, training continues throughout the loan term provided by Group Mentors.

Long-Term Impact

This program is demand-driven, charging lower interest rates, and emphasizing savings mobilization.It is Supporting Profitable economic activities through provision of income generating opportunities to 100 poor women with HIV/AIDS.
