To be a lead organisation in advocacy and the provision of literacy and poverty reduction programmes for women, men and young people at grassroots level in Zimbabwe
The ‘Banking on the Poor’ initiative uses our existing literacy groups to introduce savings and lending activities to support the financing members’ individual and group income-generating activities. Members are organized into groups of five to twenty and trained on carrying out internal savings and lending activities. This project helps members collectively pool their savings and loan it out to one another at group-determined levels of interest.
