Challenge

They are currently more than 430,000 reproductive women living under poverty line in Nsanje and Chikwawa districts according to National Statistical Office. Although government and other partners are working to address the situation poverty, illiteracy, high fertility and mortality levels among these women continue to rise. This is due to lack of accountability and transparency among duty bearers and poor data utilization and programming that does not address key issues affecting women.

Solution

PMC will provide training for women in agribusiness, develop a hand book in micro financing and financial literature for women and hold business plans training. Women will also get micro loans, embark in livestock and small scale irrigation farming.

Long-Term Impact

The project will support 90 women directly allowing them to rise out of poverty, which will provide for their families' health and well-being.
