Micro-credit scheme, our economic initiative to empower women and youth in Maswa community
KASODEFO has initiated a micro- credit scheme to Maswa community as an economic initiative to empower women and youth. The beneficiaries of the scheme are women and youth who have initiated and run their small business in selling fish, tailoring and embroidery, poultry, gardening, fish farming, carpentry, welding, etc. The organization is also planning to establish a training center for tailoring and embroidery, and computer skills training as a means of building vocational capacity to its scheme beneficiaries for tailoring and embroidery, and secretarial businesses. We have also discussed and agreed with District Community Development Office to help our scheme members through training in small business and entrepreneurship.
