1. We provide an interest-free loan in the form of goods for them to start a productive project.
2. We offer the workshop "A Business that Transcends", made up of 12 basic business courses in their native tongue, to guide them in the beginning stages of their projects.
3. We monitor their projects through consulting sessions for up to 3 years to ensure their success.
4. We assist the participants in selling their products in a fair market and without intermediaries.
