Trickle Up's microenterprise development program is specifically designed to reach the extreme poor, people surviving on less than $1.25 a day, and provide them with the appropriate support and services required to address their particular challenges.
With a special focus on women and people with disabilities, Trickle Up helps the poorest people take their first steps out of poverty, while also empowering them with long-term, sustainable livelihoods. For many women, this is the first time they will have such an opportunity.
Since 1979, Trickle Up has helped people worldwide raise their household income level, improve their standard of living, and gain confidence to envision a brighter future.
Throughout the developing world, Trickle Up entrepreneurs have taken their day-to-day responsibilities and inherent talents, such as cooking, sewing, or harvesting, and transformed these skills into viable businesses, thus bettering the lives of their families, communities, and themselves.
