Self-Sustainable - Business Startup (Zimbabwe)

Self-Sustainable projects are an amazing way to help individuals generate their own income to help provide for themselves and their families

Business Startup

By providing someone with the relevant tools needed you can help someone start and run their own business. This could benefit not just the person themselves but their family, villages and towns where the business can expand and create a long term legacy

Sewing Business

Providing someone with a sewing machine is like giving them a lifetime asset which can be used continuously for a very long time. The beneficiary can learn and implement new skills and create an income through tailoring, repairing and maybe even creating their own clothes

Cost: £250

This will provide the beneficiary with an electrical sewing machine, materials to get started and even training



Goat Business
