Women and Girls Disabilities (WGDs) are discriminated and excluded from employment and economic opportunities, and are among the poorest in their communities. They do not own what they produce because the land belongs to their family members. They lack the required collateral to enable them secure credit for investment, and the majorities are single mothers without any source of income.
Their children starve and end up on the streets, hence, a social problem to society. Financial service providers and employers are hesitant to take on WGDs even when they qualify for the job because they equate disability to inability to perform. WGDs live in a series of unstable relationships because society considers them less eligible partners. Men do not want to identify with WGDs in public; they just crawl to their houses at night only
to satisfy their sexual desires. This exposes them to unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases; and as such, they cannot engage in productive work because of poor health. This poses a risk of falling deeper into poverty and despair.
