Women’s rural enterprise program

COTI has launched a new program to enable women from Laclubar and Soibada to start up new enterprises. They will be trained in how to make candies, marmalade, ketchup and scented soap made from locally available agro-crops. Eight women will be provided with a loan of $500 to be repaid with zero interest rate. The funds will be rotated to other women until it reaches as many women as possible in a revolving fund mechanism. This is an exciting program being financed by GTNT and Interwork, Australia.
