Hard-working informal sector workers, entrepreneurs and businesses were hit by the covid-19 crisis and lockdowns. They required working capital to aid their recovery but they:

  • Lost means to income
  • Lost savings
  • Can’t avail formal credit due to lacking financial footprint

Started as a response to the COVID-19 induced livelihood crisis, REVIVE aims to aid economic recovery of the informal sector. Due to the recurrent nature of the pandemic, REVIVE has evolved to include additional support interventions that build the resilience of beneficiaries to enable comprehensive growth despite any future crisis.

Since October 2021, REVIVE has reached the families and communities of over 84,000 individuals, and is on its way to positively impacting 200,000 deserving individuals
