To get their livelihoods off the ground, Trickle Up provides seed capital for new and diverse income-generating activities and microenterprises.
Skills training helps women connect with the key knowledge they need to advance their livelihoods. This includes technical support and extension.
Coaching is a key part of the Graduation Approach, which is the foundation for Trickle Up programs. Households work with coaches to plan for the future and build key life skills.
Savings groups provide women a space to collaborate and problem-solve as a group, strengthening community ties and increasing financial inclusion.
