HOW IT WORKS
ADAPT TO CLIMATE CHANGE
Agro-Economy Booster provides ultra-poor women with appropriate support to enable them to advance to progressive levels of economic independence. As micro-finance becomes increasingly commercial philanthropic capital can have the greatest impact. TIPS identifies participants through a comprehensive, three-stage process to ensure it reaches the truly ultra poor whom traditional micro-finance cannot help.
Once participants, or members, are identified, they are assigned a case manager. Over a period of 18 months, that case manager interacts intensively and individually with 50 members, visiting their homes once a week and providing each with assets, agricultural training, and a stipend.
