Women Empowerment for Self-Reliance (WES)

Women Empowerment for Self-Reliant program is working on group approach. Women face many social obstacles; moreover they have very little access in financial institutions. But women can keep contribution in the society and country as well. The loan program helps them to come out from the bondage of the society and helps them to live in the society with dignity. The goal is that the beneficiaries will become empowered, free from exploitation and self-reliant through Women Empowerment for Self-reliant program for socio-economic transformation.
