Work together, escape from poverty!

With a small loan, the women can buy a cow or a pig, to increase their meager income. Since then, a lot has changed for the good; the women earn some extra money for their family, the can pay of their loans and sometimes they even manage to put aside some savings. Together the women more and more succeed in overcoming setbacks. more work for more women But even after 10 years, the work isn’t finished yet. Out of our own experience we know it takes more time to improve the livelyhood of the poorest. With our partners we plan to start new microfinance projects for women cooperations. And with your support we can help quite a lot of these production groups. So if you would you like to contribute to our projects? On behalf of country director Pham Dung, we sincerely thank you for your support.
