Empowering women and creating access to housing and employment In the slums of Addis Ababa women are often dependent on men for their income and housing and sometimes these men are not capable or willing to provide for their family. Cordaid and WISE provide women with the opportunity to strengthen their skills in order to provide their own income and with the aid of micro credit loans these women can start a business or buy a safe and affordable house.

The main goal is to provide sustainable solutions for the situation of poverty and dependency many women live in. We aim to assure that women can live in a comfortable house and have access to employment so that their children can grow up in a healthy environment and with access to education. We do this in a direct manner by training women and providing loans but also on a larger scale by empowering local initiatives for women.

* Give training to similar organizations on subjects of business and micro credit
* Organize events where women, NGO’s and community organizations can exchange information
* Stimulate sustainable business development so that women are able to pay back the loans
* Provide access to micro credit loans for housing or entrepreneurship
* Provide participating women with training to improve their business skills
* Organize women into working cooperatives for businesses
