Micro-credits for women
Women over 18 years, Dalits or untouchables.
SECTOR OF ACTIVITY
Social and economic development of communities.
In the villages of Raichur, most adults work as labourers in agriculture for 5 months. The rest of the year this industry does not create any jobs; therefore, families have to emigrate or survive for months in precarious conditions.
Some other social problems from this part of India is the existence of Devadasis women (temple prostitutes), an ancient tradition that obligates girls from the lower castes to meet the village men’s sexual needs. They are delivered at an early age to the temple for subsequent prostitution.
With this project, itwillbe.org offers micro-credits to women so they can buy cattle or even open small shops in the village to achieve some stable income during the months in which it is not possible to work in agriculture.
