Since first piloting our microfinance program with 45 women a year ago, the program has grow to 12 groups and over 500 members! There is so much enthusiasm from the community that we can’t keep up. Participants are meeting every week to save money and to take loans to start up family businesses, to improve their living conditions and to send their children back to school. Participants are not only helping themselves out of poverty, but they are also developing their self-esteem, building friendships and learning skills in leadership and financial management.
The same families are participating in our integrated program model to help their children stay safe, healthy and in school.
Your generosity is making a tremendous change in the lives of children and their families. Thank you for your generosity and for a wonderful first year!
