Revenue Generating Projects
Ten women have tried their own piglet projects, these are going well. They have decided as soon as they can, they want to move on to become coffee traders. As the project has evolved they have begun to see strengths and weaknesses of their own project and wish to adapt. And our barber’s shop makes a small profit each month. The micro finance cannot be taken on lightly as they need to be able to support each other financially if one fails…..this is serious stuff – Two other women’s groups are still thinking about it rather than committing themselves too early.
The Barber’s Shop
In 2010 one local hair stylist raised £1500 so that we could open a barber’s shop. At present there are two barbers working there and we hope that the third will be an apprentice. The shop is on the edge of the town centre and supervision is undertaken by one of our key people.
