The Widows' Cause exists to break the poverty cycle in the lives of widows/abandoned women in India and Nepal.
We believe by investing in these women without hope, they and the generations to follow are powerfully impacted.

The Widows cause works with local teams on the ground who have a proven history of accountability and a very good work ethic.


A interest free loan of approx $200- $300 is given and repaid over 12 months.


A loan of approx $300 is given. In the future a small rate of interest may be charged
by the local teams to cover rising administration costs. The loan is repaid over 12 months.

These loans fund a small business startup or enlarge an existing business



How it Works

– A widow is assessed

– Loan dispersed

– Loan repaid over 12 months with regular monitoring

– Repaid loan re-invested
