CARE delivers lasting change by addressing poverty's underlying causes. Through financial empowerment, women are better able to provide for themselves and their families. CARE's VSLAs (Village Savings and Loan Associations) offer women an opportunity to invest in their own small businesses. Additional training imparts the skills they need to start their own small business. Training of a single CARE group can give 60 women the know-how related to managing income-generating activities, developing business plans and participating in value chains.
