With more than 6 years of providing assistance to the most deprived people in rural communities, the main goal of ILOFEM-Burundi is to improve the socio-economic well-being of women, girls and children and fight the root causes of poverty.

Since its inception, ILOFEM has been helping vulnerable women in rural settings by gathering them in community cooperatives and villages savings and loans associations, where they would start group income and generating activities and own. More than 500 women have been reached with 215 IGAs created which had a big impact on personal and family economy.
