Livelihoods and Micro-finance in West Timor (Indonesia)

West Timor is the poorest province in Indonesia, and people’s ability to better their lives is limited by their ability to earn an income.

We support micro-finance, training and education for women and men across West Timor and Bali to gain livelihoods and participate more fully in community life. We support loans for people with disabilities and educational loans for poor people, with affordable low interest rates. We also support vocational training for women and people with disabilities, in areas such as jewellery making, health and nutrition, handicrafts and learning English.

This project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, we’re making a huge difference together; lifting families out of poverty and helping people improve their lives.

Our Impact

Last year, 19,474 people received training in financial literacy, WASH and preventing human trafficking.
