Research shows that the best way to help children get out of poverty is to provide their mothers an opportunity to earn a living. In rural Kenya, we provide microloans and business training to help women start small businesses such as produce stands, market stalls and dairy farming. They use the money to pay for food, medical care, and school tuition and supplies for their children.


Our program is located in Odisha, the Indian state with the highest level of child malnutrition. We help women form self-help groups and start small businesses. We build women’s work centers, where they can meet, produce and sell goods, share resources and store inventory. They use the income they earn to feed their families.
