Shenpen Skills Training
Micro-credit and Skills Training for Poor and Needy Women in Nepal.
Most women in Nepal lack the same opportunities available to men for education, employment and economic development. As a result, they frequently struggle to gain any sort of financial independence from their fathers, brothers and husbands and go on to lead overly constrained and restricted lives. Financial difficulties faced by women tend to impact most heavily on families with the welfare, health and education of children being particularly affected.
SHENPEN SKILLS provides funds for training so that women, utilizing micro-finance loans for income generation purposes, can learn both the technical and small enterprise management skills needed to run a successful small business including marketing, bookkeeping, accounting, and business planning. Enterprises to date mostly include vegetable farming.
