Upon completion of the sewing and tailoring training each woman will need her own treadle sewing machine in order for her business to get up and running. These sewing machines enable her to work from home while still caring for her children. With just $100 we can purchase her a machine, which otherwise would be financially out of her reach.

Charcoal Ovens

charcoal-oven12-15 women would like to join together to form a commercial bakery. A business like this will provide daily income stability for more than 70 women and their children. Electricity and propane are cost prohibitive for these marginalized women. Therefore, they are in desperate need of three charcoal ovens in order for their business to thrive. Each oven will cost $240.
