Justice & Peace Supports 10 Female IDPs with Start Up Capital

Posted in Protection of the Rights of Vulnerable Groups in the Archdiocese of Bamenda.

JPS Supports some Female Internally Displaced Persons(IDPs) with Startup Capital for Income Generating Activities (IGAs); a major step in its Early Recovery Programme from the ongoing Armed Conflict in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon.

This comes after Business Plans submitted to the JPS Office by these IDPs were analyzed, monitoring visits made to their respective business site for assessment, and they all trained on Bookkeeping; entrepreneurial skills very necessary for business and financial management.

Accounts were all opened for these beneficiaries and each credited with the startup capital. So far, all of them have made theirn first withdrawals and are already putting them into use.

Remarkably, within the first two (2) months, some of them are already making deposits into their accounts. An indication of a good start and a promising future.

Monitoring visits continue to take place so as to ensure that these resources are effectively put into use, first for the benefit of these IDPs (Direct Beneficiaries), their households, the communities where they live, and in the future, for the benefit of other IDPs identified (Indirect Beneficiaries).
