Pekerti has experience in undertaking over 30 community development projects. We pay particular attention to the devastation caused by natural disasters, and how we can respond through providing emergency aid and long-term econonomic recovery. Pekerti’s community development team holds expertise in building small and micro enterprises (SMEs). They are able to deliver skills exchange in all aspects of business management, as well as providing micro credit and ongoing support. Pekerti’s unique three-tiered approach to development in which we provide our beneficiaries with training, access to the international market and a one to two per cent interest loan scheme, ensures our funding is used efficiently and our producers receive the maximum benefit.
