Supporting Economic Self-Sufficiency and Technical Assistance


Assisting women to start and manage small enterprises.

The Need

Social challenges such as environmental degradation, food shortage, unclean water and lack of employment opportunities and education can seem insurmountable, or they can alternately inspire businesses that answers a need.   Often the only place poor women can make money is in the informal economy in the exchange of goods and services. With no credit, house, land, education, or possessions, Kenyan widows struggle immensely to pay school and medical fees and feed their children, let alone save or build capital.

The Approach

The Microenterprise Fund  helps women access micro-loans allowing them to start small businesses  such as  selling locally made products.  All loan recipients receive training and assistance, becoming  economically  stable,   empowering leaders of their community. This fund gives a woman a chance at economic freedom and   independence! Eco Volunteer Travel India supports MicroEmpowered India – EduCARE India for entrepreneurial business and marketing management training which is paramount to the success of any  enterprise. We facilitate market research and product development to provide options for the establishment of social enterprises that have a clear path to success.
