Twenty asylum seekers were awarded mini-grants to start their own businesses. These widows attended an intensive training workshop to learn about entrepreneurial skills. All women raised their monthly income. Here is a case study to show project impact:

Ms. X is a poor asylum seeker sheltered with her four daughters in a UNHCR tent. Ms. Z split the grant money between her and her older daughter. She sold fish and manged to make $15 in one month. The daughter sold tomatoes and made less money. After 3 months, the total savings were $80. The money made is expected is to be invested in growing the buisness.
