A microcredit program for women

December 16, 2022

Women’s entrepreneurship projects change the power dynamics within families by giving them greater control over the decisions that affect their lives. With this in mind, KANPE launched a microcredit program for women this summer.

Managed by a local organization, this project allows more than 70 women from three women’s associations to have access to low-interest loans. They use the money to diversify their businesses or launch new projects.

This week, they had an appointment for a 3rd repayment on the amount borrowed. So far the program is a success. Well done ladies!
