Cecilia in front of newly built home
So far this year Self-Help has distributed 213 loans to women! Enterprises include palm and kernel oil processing, drying and vending beef and fish, pottery making, quality protein maize production and preparation of its edible products, poultry and animal husbandry, to name a few. All of the loans are being reimbursed on schedule, forwhich we are proud!
Women from 40 groups received loans, including four new groups from a remote, impoverished area. As first time borrowers receiving loans. Their gratitude for this opportunity is hard to overwhelming. Self-Help will carefully observe their progress and assess the benefits received from our loans and report back the findings.
One example of the positive impact of our loans is demonstrated by Cecilia below who was able to construct a sturdier, larger house for her family. The old structure is in the foreground which is being demolished.
Thanks for your support! Quality of life is improving for them with each loan!
