Our economic capacity development work focuses on the following two areas:


Promoting social economy for people

People need united actions in economic activities to have fair share of them. Thus, we promote social economy. We support social economic organization from establishment to operation. Our work through long-term partnership helps promote the organisation’s democratic management and also to assist them to become market competitive.


Improving people’s economic capacity

Along with social economy promotion, we will also work for people in poverty to obtain improved production skills and materials which they have difficulties to access. Likewise our assistance covers their financial access. Enabling financial access will provide more opportunities to enhance their economic capacity.
