Your donation will go directly to the 13 women to enable MicroLoan Foundation to provide business training and loan capital required to help their community work sustainably out of poverty.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Access to credit is a basic human right, and so often microcredit is not available to those who need it most. Our projects work with the poorest of the poor at the real grass roots. We offer a hand up, not a hand out to ensure long term impact. Supporting the 15 women of the Tikolelaneko Group will help them grow their businesses and create a permanent income to support the 49 children that depend on them for years to come. We help your donations reach the communities other NGOs fear to go
How will this project solve this problem?
By providing business training, formal structures and loan capital (from as little as £20), our projects empower local women to start small businesses with the skills and support to make sure they have every chance of success.
Potential Long Term Impact
The long term economical and social impact of our projects effects communities on every level. The first level is giving women a sustainable and ongoing income through good business. Drilling down, the income also supports over 10 dependents per loan
