WomensTrust is expanding our microfinance and education programs into new communities that will allow us to help empower thousands more impoverished women and girls in Ghana to build better futures for themselves and their families.

In December of 2012, we extended our microloan programs to women in Nsawam, a vibrant trading center of 120,000 people located about 10 miles north of Pokuase, the village where WomensTrust maintains its main office. WomensTrust has opened an office in the community and will hire two new employees to administer our programs there.

Currently, WomensTrust has more than 700 active microloan clients, and has awarded over 800 scholarships to keep girls in school.
