How You Help
Village Savings Groups provide training in money management and small business entrepreneurship. They enable members to save and borrow for business or family needs, which are repaid with interest and add to the group’s account balance.
Your gift provides capital from which micro loans can be given to a mom or dad to start or grow a small business. Loans, combined with business training provide a sustainable income for families.
When you give, men and women learn job skills so they can earn a living wage. This comes in many forms, depending on the location of the community. In South Sudan it may be farming and fishing skills. In Bangladesh it may sewing or motorbike repair. These skills equip men and women to open their own businesses or earn extra money to support their families.
