Majority of marginalized local youths are unable to start their own micro business or expand existing micro-business due to lack of capital. Local banks and financial institutions have a lot of mandatory requirements that locks out marginalized local youths to access capital for starting or expanding own business.
Due to above factors and hard economic times, marginalized local youths are forced to engage in odd jobs or social vices for survival thus contributing to poverty and under development. The above challenges compelled us to establish Inuka micro-start project that provides non- collateral micro-loans and basic business training to marginalized local youths and women.
