Lifting an entire community out of poverty

In establishing our micro finance scheme we realised the latent ambition and desire for women to lift their families out of poverty. We have been so impressed by the success of this project, by the determination and dedication of these women to succeed in their small businesses - ranging from sales of cereals, fruit and veg, to tailoring, setting up small village shops and cafes, shoe and clothes shops, beauty parlours, butcheries....

Microfinance: Welcome

After running for several years, with 2,655 active members, and having made over 3,675 loans, we handed the whole project over to the women to take ownership and develop and manage it without any further input from us. It is now completely sustainable. So, with all these new, small businesses operating is having a very positive impact on the local micro-economy, generating more cash transactions - all part of progress to move out of the fragile subsistence economy. Result!!
