“Empowering Women” program


Empowering women program

Launched in June 2018, “Empowering Women” program is a social programme in partnership with Vietnam Women’s Union, funded by BAT Vietnam with the amount of VND 1 billion. This programme is designed to give opportunity to unprivileged women in rural areas without stable jobs, to find a good job and improve their life quality by offering them an interest free loan from VND5-10 million for one year.

Until June 2019 after one-year implementation, the programme has reached more than 160 poor women in 24 border communes of An Giang and Dong Thap provinces.

Thanks to its social importance and meaning, the programme has been highly appreciated by its partners and beneficiaries.
