We have worked with a number of different women’s cooperatives and entrepreneurs over the years. Sometimes we provide skills training, mentorship, and facilitation. Other times, an entrepreneur will approach us with their idea for a business and we will help them start out with a micro loan.
The Malambo Women’s Club and Lusumpuko Women are now self-directed, self-sustaining projects. They sell their products at a monthly craft market in Lusaka.
Other income-generating projects have included a commercial chicken business, a rug hooking group, beaded art groups, and a papier mâché craft business, Sunford and Co.
