WMI's January/February 2012 Trip to East Africa


WMI President, Robyn Nietert, just completed a month long field trip to visit WMI borrowers and staff in village loan programs throughout East Africa.  The trip results were excellent.  The women in the loan program are continuing to expand their businesses, improve their families' living standards and transition to bank loans and the formal economy.  Through funding from supporters, WMI has been able to continue adding new loan hubs so that more impoverished women can have an opportunity to launch a business to support their families.  Check out the blog posts and pictures on the WMI web site to see the progress on WMI borrowers in 2012: http://wmionline.wordpress.com/
