Volunteer Opportunity description

Microcredit-Cooperative-Support.jpg

Financially deprived women do not have basic funds for investment; consequently, they have less chance of generating further income. VIN's Microcredit Project is one of the most important initiatives within our Women's Empowerment Program for promoting economic empowerment among community women. We seek committed volunteer or interns to support the initiative and the over 500 women who have become a part of it.

While it is estimated that 40% of Nepali women are engaged in economic work, their roles as mentors and labourers are not recognised. Often denied an education and ownership of property, they remain confined in menial jobs within agriculture. They cannot change their circumstances without access to credit or training.
