CARE Canada

Financial Inclusion

Purpose

Enhance economic opportunities for vulnerable populations, primarily women and girls.

Why We Partnered

This project will provide financial access to vulnerable and chronically food insecure households in rural areas.  In Ethiopia, CARE will serve chronically food insecure households that receive cash transfers from the Safety Net program. In Burundi, adolescent girls and vulnerable women will get access to finance with life and business skills training as well as mentoring services. In Côte d’Ivoire, CARE will form Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLAs) in areas affected by past conflicts.
