Economic Empowerment Program (EEP)

The EE Program helps men and women embrace their self-worthiness and provides them with vital business skills and training.

 

THE PROBLEM

A large number of men and women in Dagoretti lack formal education, self-confidence, and business skills needed to earn an income and meet their family’s basic needs. Additionally, women in Dagoretti are often single mothers, uneducated, unemployed, and refugees living in severe poverty. They lack the ability to save or borrow the minimum funds necessary to open, operate and maintain businesses.

 

OUR SOLUTIONS

 

FREE BUSINESS WORKSHOPS

Provide business skills to men and women through a 4-week education series that includes personal empowerment, business planning, financial recordkeeping, customer service, product pricing, inventory tracking, marketing and branding.

 

CAPITAL INVESTMENT

Introduced in 2015, CapStart offers capital investment and support to graduates of our Economic Empowerment Program to start and improve their businesses. We carefully evaluate each business and invest where there is the greatest potential for growth and job creation. Rather than having the recipients repay a loan, we have a pay-it-forward policy that requires them to give away goods or services equal to the investment. 

 

OUR IMPACT
