Growing Through Partnerships
PCI understands that successfully supporting income generation requires partnering with the private sector, governments and communities.
In Malawi, PCI worked with the Government of Malawi to connect mature Women Empowered groups to the Community Savings and Investment Promotion (COMSIP) Cooperative Union Limited to give them access to additional training and capital.
In Guatemala, PCI’s Programa META is tackling the barriers to women’s entrepreneurship and income generation. Working with Women Empowered group members in rural and urban communities in Hueheutenango, Progama META is providing customized support to women based upon their individual needs so they can access opportunities to generate sustainable income, such as support to formalize nascent businesses; skills-building in record keeping, inventory management, marketing, and quality control; and linkages to medium and large size businesses at the regional and national level.
