Capacity building is an important part of helping survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking become self-sufficient and financially independent. Programs can include financial literacy training, access to microcredit financing, and support to start small businesses. Financial independence can help survivors break the cycle of violence and build a secure future for themselves and their families.
Additionally, providing access to microcredit financing can help survivors establish credit and gain access to larger loans.
