Women Of Will runs projects that develop the lives of disadvantaged women in Malaysia by giving them an opportunity to be empowered and self-sufficient. These are the projects we are currently running:
Micro-Credit Financing in Klang Valley
To date Women Of Will has transformed the lives of 350 disadvantaged women in Klang Valley. These women have received loans and started micro-enterprises with them. Based on our Impact Study conducted in 2015, on average each woman has an increase of 30% in their household income. We continue to support our beneficiaries by coaching them and providing them with additional skills training, entrepreneurship training, networking opportunities and events where they may sell their products.
Micro-Credit Financing in Ipoh, Perak
In 2015, Women Of Will, in collaboration with The Inner Wheel Society of Ipoh East, expanded its reach to Ipoh, Perak where 25 disadvantaged women have received loans. These 25 women have started businesses and are running them successfully. We hope to expand the scale of this project in the coming months.
Collective Farming in Sabah
In December 2015 Women Of Will made a trip to Keningau, Sabah to perform a ‘Needs Analysis’ in rural communities there to start a Collective Farming Project with the women in rural communities. The findings of the study showed a dire need for a project that would develop the economic situation of the rural communities in Sabah. We hope to begin our Collective Farming Project in Sabah in Quarter 3 of 2016.
