These families had difficulties finding funding to create or develop their income-generating activity before working with Entrepreneurs of the World.
Using a system of personalized monitoring, with counseling on savings, management training, technical training, micro-insurance, etc., the NGO not only contributes to the economic development of a segment of the population traditionally on the outskirts of financial circuits, but also to their awareness of other issues such as health or the environment.
Thus, to fight deforestation, Entrepreneurs of the World, in partnership with microfinance institutions (MFIs) and the FAFASO project (Foyers Améliorés au FASO) by GIZ, have launched in Burkina Faso a project entitled “A Woman, a Home, a Forest. “
The project promotes improved cook stoves, which consume 40 percent less firewood than a traditional stove.
This project aims to educate women and enable them to acquire either a gas stove or an improved cook stove, through micro-financing and / or savings. The stoves are destined either for their home or for their income-generating activity.
