Angola is one of Africa's most rapidly urbanizing nations largely owing to the large influxes of rural displaced peoples. These internal refugees have fled to the peri-urban areas of luanda to escape from the war being fought in the rural areas. Luanda has a current population estimate of 3 million (DW 1996;2). This large population density is one of contributing factors that account for limited job opportunities for both skilled and unskilled labour.

Women are an important part of the informal economy and in family survival strategies. But women face many difficulties in the informal economy: low incomes, few skills, little knowledge of their rights, no support from authorities and a feeling of isolation. The present progect proposal is situated within the context of DW's Luanda Women's Enterprise Development Programme which is a micro-enterprise pilot programme using a participatory subsector approach within the informal sector of the Luanda. The programme focuses on peri-urban communities where the majority of the internally displaced live.
