We don't wear suits or ties, we roll up our sleeves. But we do have to write donor reports to get our funding. We get help from friends as well...
We lend villagers some money, help them raise fish, plant vegetables, or stock up on groceries for their home based stalls. When people make a profit, they can send their kids to school, care for elders relatives, get proper healthcare... and help us help others, making new friends in the process... That's what part of a community is!
Because we've got limited funds, we can only provide relatively small loans (below US $200). We do not require collaterals (meaning we're not going to go after people's pots and pans or motorbikes if they can't repay us on time), but we ask that other villagers help guarantee the loans.
No amount is too small as long as the money goes towards employment creation and sustainable economic activities.
