Quechua Indigenous Women

This is a social development initiative, to provide superior support for those interested in business and also to those who are already in a micro businesses. This is very unique flexible microfinance program which is not in a form of a loan to the entrepreneurs but rather to enable the members assist raising another entrepreneur(s) in the community. Before funds are given to the entrepreneurs, we take all members through a thorough training in their choice of businesses. Contact us for more information about this special microfinance program.

 

The training also include, basic book keeping, basic computer skills, basic accounting, banking, investment, networking, online marketing, social media.

 

The second phase of the program is to teach the women how to continue raising more and more women in business. This has been very successful so far.   The program is attached to our adult education program where we teach those adult who can not read or write. This is really a life changing program.

 

 

STAESA Microfinance a very busy program where our volunteers and interns feel very useful.

 

STAESA the initiator of this project have become aware of an increase in circumstances of abuse of women, poverty among the women in the communities and their surrounding villages, hence the need to use this program to create jobs, minimize unemployment, minimize poverty and to provide them with basic education. The program is part of our Women Economic Empowerment program.
