The Multiplier Effect at Work in Microfinance Training

Warm greetings

We are delighted to be able to share with you a video testimonial from Peter, one of the microfinance beneficiaries that has been impacted by the funds you have provided.  Be sure to click on the link - Video Testimonial - Peter .

Peter explains in the video that because of the training and the growth of his business, he is now able to provide for himself and his family of 5 children.  He says additionally: "Well its really helped me and because of that help I can now teach others on how to run a business."  In other words, the impact of the training that you have helped provide, is being multiplied when he shares his knowledge with other people. During additional training sessions that we have held, Peter has shared his experience and valuable lessons learned with new beneficiaries.  Thanks to you his business continue to grow and each cycle he qualifies for a new, larger loan.

Peter rounds up the video with the following words: "For Develop Africa, Globalgiving and other donor and partners, I do not even know how to begin to express my appreciation.  We appreciate everything their goodness and all they do for us - because they do not know us and yet they have gone to so much trouble to help us.  They have contributed greatly to our success.  They help our children and family as well. I pray God blesses them and their families and continue to provide for them more and more in whatever they do."

Peter could not have sent it better and we echo his appreciation to you, our Globalgiving donors.  We deeply appreciate your past and on-going support - as we plan towards a new session that will take place in February or March.  Please take a few minutes to make a donation today that will help us impact many more lives.  Thanks for your support - and please share this with your friends.

Cordially and best wishes

Peter and other microfinance beneficiaries
