Challenge

Community Facilitators (CF) are volunteers selected by their peers in Village Savings and Lending (VS&L) clubs for leadership with a desire to help. ASAP provides them leadership and VS&L skills to help more people in the community. The sixty current CFs cannot reach out to all their community members even walking an average of 10km per day on rugged roads. These long distances weaken the CF’s quality and impact plus their work is only accomplished by taking time from their own personal affairs.

Solution

Using eco-friendly bicycles for their fieldwork will significantly improve mobility and the quality of time spent with each person visited. Plus a CF will be able to reach more families per month and still have time for their own personal business.

Long-Term Impact

With the improved ability to travel the rural areas, volunteers will reach more people in the community. As more community members are reached on a regular basis, the overall financial health of the community will be greatly improved.
