Disability an Ability

Organized by: Alfy Lelei

Lack of access to funds is a major obstacle for establishing a business especially for people with a disability; many potential lenders incorrectly perceive people with a disability to be a high risk for loans. There is a strong correlation between disability and poverty with poverty leading to higher rates of disability and disability increasing the risk of poverty. This project targets a total of 100 People with Disability from low income backgrounds (slum set-ups). The fund will be used to train them in Income Generating Activities (IGA) and fund them with a startup capital, to enable them live a dignified life. We believe access to livelihood opportunities is fundamental to ending the cycle of poverty and disability. In recognition of this, skills development and economic empowerment need to be encouraged for people with disability. The economic empowerment of people with a disability is the key to independent living and social participation. Many mainstream micro finance programs are not inclusive of people with a disability due to restrictive entry requirements related to education, skills and collateral, thus the need to fund raise for people with disability
