Village Loans & Business Training

Five successful village loan projects were repaid in 2006, allowing the Alliance to reissue all five loans to new villages. The Alliance was also able to extend two more loans this year. The new villages have chosen to use their funding for fiber, grain bank and fertilizer projects.

The quality of business training has also increased with the introduction of "How to start your own Business," a ProLiteracy manual translated into the local dialect of Bamanakan. Native Economic Development Coordinator, Alou Doumbia works closely with an assigned Peace Corps volunteer to assist village committees with their new business.
