Focused on helping women in the poorest parts of the world, this model of micro-finance or “good faith” loans has proven to be the most effective way to reach the poorest people in society, by empowering them to take control of their lives rather than rely on handouts.
It is based on the principle of trusting people- the same people that banks would even not lend to in the first place, due to their status in society, or lack of formal education or assets.
And with a loan return rate as high as 97% in the developing world, i.e. higher than most loans in the west, the money you send does not get paid back to us. Instead it gets paid forward to the next person who needs it.
This means that even £3-5 per month ongoing could become the seed to help dozens of people transform their lives!
