LCIF’s Microenterprise Project is Changing Lives in Kenya
Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) and Lions are working to reduce poverty. Through microenterprise, small loans are awarded to individuals to help them purchase supplies and equipment needed to start their own businesses. These individuals are then able to provide for themselves and their families, and to contribute to their communities.
LCIF believes that microenterprise is an important opportunity to support and promote economic well-being for men and women who live at or below the poverty level, have limited skills and wish to improve their financial situation.
The Lions of District 411-A in Kenya, in partnership with ASA Kenya, secured a microenterprise grant from LCIF to help women in and around Kibera. Watch the video above to see the impact of the project in that region.
