CHINAR LIVELIHOOD SUPPORT: HELPING FAMILIES GET BACK ON THEIR FEET
As CHINAR continued to assess flood devastated areas, a list of flood victims from low income group families who need livelihood support was developed to deal with the economic blow which was one of the catastrophic aftermaths of the September Floods 2014. To help small business owners recover from the flood, CHINAR International is providing interest free loans (to an initial target group of 100 beneficiaries) so that loan recipients can resume income-earning activities.
So far, under the livelihood revival program, CHINAR International has provided livelihood support totailors and boutique owners, auto rickshaw and load carrier drivers, handicraft women through Self Help Groups, artists, provision-al stores, leather workers, mobile tea stall and pharmacy owners. There are more cases in the pipeline for which we are currently seeking funding.
