Small business development is important to the overall economic development and empowerment of this community. We are so grateful to have had a generous donor fund our first small business project: a convenience store. The store is the first of its kind in the area. Not only does the store provide a steady income for the family who runs it, but it also creates local commerce and saves the community members time and money they used to spend traveling long distances to the nearest city to buy groceries and household items.

Our Country Director, Percina, shares the business expertise she's learned working with Kurandza with the family who runs this store.
