equip people living in extreme poverty with resources to create sustainable businesses

What do we do?

We combine education, training and mentoring to create sustainable income-generating businesses.

How do we do it?

through...
1. business training
2. seed capital grants or non-cash asset transfer
3. on-going mentoring
4. savings circles

Does it work?

YES! Through June 2011, we’ve helped start 23,000 small businesses. 75% are still operating after 3 years. A third of our entrepreneurs start additional businesses. Read our impact assessment at http://www.villageef.org/PDF/PR_18mar08.pdf to learn more.
