Progressing from Relief to Sustainability

A spread of materials for mat knitting.

Under the leadership of our Transformational Community Development (TCD) champion, a few families have benefited with the micro-loan program. The aim of the loan is to help the needy families start a small scale family business to Generate Income. The program has encouraged and helped 25 needy households in Yone Taw village.

Out of 25 households, 15 households started a mat knitting business for Income Generation, and 10 households started a long term agricultural business which is betel plant plantation. The Champion  recommended those two most marketable products/business ideas to the villagers. The program is ongoing and expected to have good results in the next quarter. The Champion and her team are interested in building a Water filtration system. Our plan is to continue to engage with the champion and follow her leadership for the good interest of the community.

Transformational Community Development (TCD) Update:

Income Generation

Our team used to provide food relief for the needy families in this village for a few weeks. However, as we seek for a more sustainable solution, the team initiated a micro-loan program under the leadership of our Champion. The accountability group was formed with five people (but does not represent the entire community) and works are ongoing. Twenty-five families are benefiting through this program.

Thank you!
