International Women’s Day

We are excited to launch #WomenWhoInspire, our digital campaign in celebration of International Women’s Day! The campaign acknowledges, honours and celebrates the women in our lives who inspire us, both in MicroLoan’s network, in sub-Saharan Africa and across our global community. We have been collecting campaign participant headshots along with quotes about inspiring women in their lives to share across our social media between 4th – 10th March 2024.

Please get involved with our #WomenWhoInspire campaign, you can find it on all our social media channels so make sure you’re following us!



At MicroLoan we are inspired by the resilience and tenacity of our clients every single day. Take Margaret Mwale, for example, a woman in her late fifties who lives in Kawendama village in a remote area of Chipata, Zambia. Margaret took out her first loan 2 years ago and has since then established a successful second-hand clothing business close to the local village market.

Kawendama is a village of around 150 households which has a MicroLoan centre consisting of 6 groups and 28 members. Margaret inspired the women around her so much that she was elected by the other women to be the leader of the centre, a role that comes with great respect and responsibility.

We have thousands of stories like Margaret’s, women who not only inspire those around them to proactively change their lives for themselves and their families but also inspire us to do the work we do supporting women living in extreme poverty in sub-Saharan Africa.

In celebration of International Women’s Day, and in honour of the women that inspire us, please consider donating £5 (or more if you can). We can’t wait to celebrate International Women’s Day together and see how much of an impact we can make together. We truly appreciate your support and hope you’ll join us to make a sustainable difference.
