It can be difficult to earn a living as a small business owner in Sri Lanka, especially for women. Poor access to reliable market information, inefficient supply chains and poor or no storage facilities often prevents them from earning enough to support themselves and their families. But through gifts like these, Oxfam’s Resilient and Gender Inclusive Enterprise Systems (RIES) project can support women like Rishani to develop their businesses and become profitable.
“Even though I had challenges, I did not properly identify them until I met Oxfam,” Rishani says. “RIES project intervention created an opportunity to stimulate the business thinking, develop business models and motivated us to make it happen.”
Oxfam acknowledges the support of the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP).
