Phakamani Foundation addresses poverty and chronic unemployment in rural South Africa by helping people create their own livelihoods.
Where jobs are scarce, a micro-enterprise can be the difference between hope and destitution for a family. But to create stable and sustainable micro-enterprises, even very simple ones, people need access to affordable credit and other kinds of critical support. This is what Phakamani provides, offering a hand up to those in need.
… a country in which even the poorest entrepreneur has the opportunity to create a business, uplift a family, and build a dream.
… to empower poor individuals to succeed at micro-enterprise by providing training, suitable micro-finance products, and on-going support that will help them thrive.
