Through Compassion's microenterprise program, people living in poverty learn valuable, life-changing skills like the basics of generating income and running a business. Compassion's program covers a variety of aspects of microenterprise, including financial management, basic business and accounting and credit management. This unique program helps stop the generational cycle of poverty. As parents are able to provide an education for their children, their children are then able to provide for their own families.
When people live in poverty, they often don't have access to even the most basic education and the prospect of learning how to run a business or manage finances is slim. Illiteracy is a common obstacle to microenterprise and income generation.
Compassion's microenterprise program offers them the opportunity to learn a trade that will generate income and enable them so earn a living.
Through the microenterprise and income generation program, Compassion doesn't just provide a quick solution but addresses long term needs for people in poverty. As a donor, you can have a part in this program that is changing lives all over the world.
