Starting a Women's Entrepreneurship Group
Organized by: Sustainable Village Project - VolNepal
81% of the women interviewed own no property.
Only 23% of women interviewed are literate.
66% of women are interested in participating in a women's entrepreneurship group to learn together about ideas to generate additional income.
An entrepreneurship group would empower the women in the village to take responsibility for their business by exposing them to income options and teaching them how to make a business plan. We will start with a pilot group of women.
Our group would collect half of the funds needed by villagers and VolNepal would provide the other half. Out of all 53 women interviewed, 45% are willing to invest in their new business.
