It’s hard to imagine doing anything meaningful with just $10.00. But in Africa it can go a long way, and make a world of difference!
This may be a symbolic gift store, but MicroLoan Foundation Australia’s work gives some of the poorest women in rural sub-Saharan Africa the education and support they need to build a self-sustainable business, and escape the never-ending poverty cycle.
By providing a microloan, our female clients are able to use their business profits to feed their children more nutritious meals, provide them with an education and save money for emergencies. Loan capital is typically recycled around 2.5 times per year so your $10 gift if donated for this purpose, delivers $25.00 of support in Africa. Loan capital is continually recycled. For example: Last year MicroLoan Foundation internationally sent $1.2 million to Africa, but prior year’s donations allowed us to provide more than $4 million in loans.
From opening our Mulanje branch in May 2009 till September 2013, MicroLoan Foundation Australia has sent $135,000 to Malawi and provided over $700,000 of loans!
So give a Gift which will grow.
