On sustainability, the project’s intention is to encourage the beneficiaries build a cooperative to start a Village Savings and Loans Association (VSLA). This will enable them raise funds to expand their trade in the future and provide seed capital for new members who join the association.
Also, the project has been designed to provide entrepreneurship and financial literacy training to enable beneficiaries effectively run their enterprises through diversification and so on.
