With the ongoing pandemic of the corona virus out break, women have become more vulnerable to poverty with the highest rates affecting 80% of female headed households. Women are often the ones responsible for the family obligations and family income in many impoverished countries. In Zambia, women are primarily responsible for feeding there families and contribute 50 to 80% of the agricultural produce. While access to funding to provide for start up capital for micro business that generate income can greatly reduce the women's exposure to chronic poverty.
So what Wilbelt services does, it provides opportunity to impoverished women living below the poverty line to start working their way out of poverty through our credit group project so that they can fully participate in the development of their communities and the nation at large. To date, Wilbelt services has helped over 20 women to move from earning $30 per month to $50-$150 per month. We have a total of 300 women looking forward to our program and how they can start their journey from poverty to financial autonomy.
An investment in Wilbelt services is an investment in quality. Investing in women is the only sure way of breaking the vicious cycles of poverty in rural and slum communities of Zambia. Wilbelt provides women with the essential tools they need to successfully work their way out of poverty and build thriving and sustainable communities. Wilbelt seeks to revolutionize and to grow the microfinance industry. The company upholds a dual mission of providing affordable capital to "unbankable" women while operating an efficient, profitable business.
We are therefore seeking for well wishers to donate to this cause.
