Microfinance Loans and Protective Masks Are Helping to Stop The Spread of COVID-19
By Amy Baty-Herbert - Project Coordinator
Dear Project Supporters,
The Coronavirus AKA COVID-19 is disrupting lives and businesses globally. The businesses in Sierra Leone are no exception.
With COVID-19 pandemic taking the focus of all of our attention, your ongoing support is currently supporting local tailors like Josie, pictured here, with the funds needed to purchase all the materials needed to sew face masks. Protective masks stop the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus from person to person.
Microfinance loans will continue to help individuals become self-sufficient and provide a better life for their families. Microfinance loans will help support businesses adjust to the needs of the community, such as tailors making face masks and sellers adding items such as soap to their items for sale.
Together we will win.
We encourage you to consider starting a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way to give individuals a hand up in their businesses. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.
With great appreciation, Amy &The Develop Africa Team
