We were Rope. Now we’re Project Possible.

It’s an exciting new chapter for the charity. Come and see what all the fuss is about…

N’Djamena, Chad

The Determined Women of N'Djamena

Length of project: 12 months

Partner: FEEEJ

We’ve studied hard at school. Some of us even have degrees and yet our country's failing economy means that jobs are hard to find. We don’t want to join the statistics and be one of the 75,000 graduates in Chad that are unemployed.

With our businesses we have the potential to become independent business women.

Their story

Meet Eliane, Lea and Nadege

We are entrepreneurs with innovative ideas. Project Possible has given us the encouragement and support to believe that we can turn our lives around and begin to support our families. We may be young women, but there are gaps in the market and we plan to fill those with new businesses.

One of us plans to grow a mini corner shop for the community, another will be creating tailor-made outfits for neighbours and friends, and another will set up a milling service for grains, groundnuts and condiments. Each of our exciting new plans will meet the needs of our local community and prove that women can achieve anything they set their minds to.

Innovative ideas to serve their community
“I studied in Cameroon and have a law degree, but I haven’t managed to find any paid work since returning to Chad. I see the need for a milling service every time I go to the market. My idea to start a milling business will help me become independent and give back to my family.” Nadege's innovative idea

Their project

Three businesses for the whole community

We’ll be working closely with our partner in Chad, FEEEJ, to help Eliane, Lea and Nadege to kick-start their ventures:

  1. Funding each entrepreneur with a start-up grant and three months of financial support to develop their new businesses
  2. Purchasing all the tools and stock needed to give them the best start
  3. Providing business mentoring and training for one year
Resourceful women waiting to get their ventures started
