Warm greetings from the Develop Africa Team

Each new day we are excited about the impact we are making together. We are delighted to provide you with this field update:

A total number of fifteen (15) beneficiaries are currently enrolled in the microfinance /micro credit scheme. This scheme has been of tremendous helping parents to support their families and meet additional costs of education. Here's a heart-warming testimonial from one of the female beneficiaries, Monday Bangura.
Monday Bangura is a new, female microfinance beneficiary who joined the scheme in January this year. Monday has three children and her husband is a temporary vehicle driver. More often than not he is without a job. Christiana, Monday’s eldest child is a beneficiary of Develop Africa's scholarship scheme.

In her own words: "I had difficulty providing daily school lunch for Christiana as well as taking care of the other children out of the meager proceeds of peanuts sale I was engaged in. The microfinance support has helped me to expand my business, generate more income and enroll my second child in school. I am very grateful to GlobalGiving and Develop Africa for your support. Indeed, you have restored my dignity and self-esteem in the community. I can now send my children to school with enough food to eat. I thank you very much”.

Thanks donors for helping to restore her dignity and self-esteem. The impact of your donations is powerful and priceless!

Let's impact many more lives together.... We invite you to make a donation today or be sure to include us in your end-of-year-giving plans.

Our very best wishes
