Globeleq funds upgrades for local ostrich farms

De Aar Solar Power, through its Enterprise Development Programme, has focused on women empowerment as a key driver of its programmes and has as the first beneficiaries funded by the business, assisted two women farming ostriches in the area.

Unable to come up with enough money to pay for costly infrastructure upgrades to their farms required as a result of new government health and safety laws, the women were in danger of losing their businesses.

But as you can hear in this short film, funding through this programme has enabled these two entrepreneurs to meet the challenges and face the future with far more confidence.
