Nehem and Vrouwen van Nu promoted further establishment of local economic activities by members of the local branches. The promotion of economic activities consisted of: promotion of self-initiative, assessment of business ideas and provision of elementary equipment for viable business ideas. Several vocational training courses were conducted to support the new businesses, varying from marketing courses to training in small scale cheese making. The business promotion resulted in a big number of activities like agro-tourism, glass houses for (early) vegetable growing, animal breeding, service providing, etc. These economic activities proved to be sustainable and influenced the household incomes significantly.
