Serang (Agenzia Fides) - The status of women is very precarious in Indonesia, they often remain isolated from the working world and very often work without receiving any salary. The phenomenon is widespread in Pandeglang and Lebak, Banten province, where there is no support or a sustainable business model. Thanks to the Pusat Pengembangan Sumberdaya Wanita (PPSW) organization, partners of Caritas Australia, more than 272 women are helped directly to develop and maintain their businesses in rural communities and to start a new life for themselves. PPSW provides training and technical assistance for the start-up of small savings. (AP) (Agenzia Fides 25/01/2017)
