Need Assessment in Ermera and Aileu Districts on 4th - 6th and 10th - 12th March 2009
The objective of the Needs Assessment was to identify the groups and gather information about target group activities and the business plan. Based on this assessment FKSH determined which will become as the new focus microenterprise groups under the FKSH program. The criteria are principally that the groups have a clear activity plan, structure, and lack opportunity to access loans from other sources such as NGOs and institutions.
FKSH informed the Deputy Administrator of Ermera and Administrator of Aileu about its “Women in development program” and consulted them about the groups that FKSH may help. In Ermera, we had meeting with the 4 new groups with activities such as sewing, sell coffee, weaving. In Aileu we had meeting with three groups, two of which participated in the FKSH training program and one new group. Their activities are bakery, plant and sell vegetable and making carrot cheeps.
We used a questionnaire and informal workshop interviews to gather information about the group’s activities.
