Summary

We are desperate, we have been given this opportunity for proof of concept on Global Giving and we are on a test. We must raise $5K from minimum 40 donors to keep our account. We are striving to improve the way AID is used in Africa, we are introducing AID recycle. Used as a float over and over again, empowering 64 impoverished single mothers 4 times per year = 256 x 20 years is 5,120 mothers from your one $10 donation. Please help us to make this happen, to help us help others.

Challenge

There are 150,000,000 single mothers in Sub-Saharan Africa yet the abject poverty, increased child mortality & impact on productivity & economy receive surprisingly little attention. Women are good credit risk, reports site less than 1% default. Funding can be obtained but banks don't send money out of the country, results in short supply & high costs. The float acts as trade finance to import the vehicles which can then be financed, the float replaced and used again.

Solution

We foster entrepreneurial development to empower single mothers in rural areas of Ghana to get out of poverty through participation in the transport industry. A team of 4 mothers where one drives, one child minds, one markets and one has time for chores. Supported by four different income streams. Our Campaign addresses the real insurmountable barrier of trade finance to import, instead of spending this AID we are going to recycle it over and over again to facilitate a profound impact.

Long-Term Impact

We intend to us the AID as a float to import small specialist delivery vehicles that can then be financed. This allows us to assist 64 single mothers 4 times per year. Eg: 256 per year for 20 years is 5,120 mothers from the one donation. We have identified 74 Branch locations in Ghana which would provide direct job creation and prosperity for 14,208 single mothers in Ghana. To expand by country to assist approximately 522,228 single mothers into prosperity who might then pay it forward.
