Lack of knowledge about iinvestment procurement and i.eDifficulties in identifying training methods for their interests have been identified as the main problems faced by local people ccommunities.

After a lengthy discussion between RUral Eentrepreneurial team and the rural community around Woxsen, the areas of interest they caught the eye of the community members. These include – starting a dairy farm, training to be a professional DJ, opening a general store and more.

As part of the project, the team met with a widow who worked as a dressmaker to run the household and feed her two children. With the minimal means she has, she provides employment for 6-10 local girls by training them in tailoring using a sewing machine she has at home. Although a few upgraded machines could make her job easier and set her up a business, it’s not easy for her to get a bank loan.
