One Summarizing Sentence

FAPE is currently designing and evaluating a training program to offer to poor women whom participate in our microcredit program.

Project Description


FAPE is starting a training program to our microcredit clients. Many impact assessments have confirmed a very positive effect on microentrepreneurs from offering business-training classes. We plan on creating a 10-part program to teach our clients topics including: finances, budgeting, product marketing, self-esteem, nutrition and health, and biblical lessons. FAPE reaches close to 4,000 women without resources to better their lives. Our mission is to provide them the resources to improve their livelihoods.
