Utilizing the Micro Loan Program
Posted November 28, 2018
I have been following up with villagers by teaching lessons on health, hygiene, and disease prevention to the children and women’s group. I was greatly encouraged when the community told me that our Transformational Community Development (TCD) lessons are so powerful for their community development.
The first group that participated in the micro loan program has benefited much from the small fund that we supported. The first group paid back their loan and then it was loaned to the next group. More community people are interested in participating in the micro loan program.
Water—We have continued the lessons on safe drinking water and disease prevention because they are so helpful to the poor community.
Food—Our lessons about growing green vegetables in the garden on their own land or on leased land has positively impacted them.
Income Generation—Micro businesses, goat loan program, and vegetable farming are the key sources of support for these poor families.
Education—Our children’s tutoring classes and women’s literacy classes are continuing, and the partnership with the local school is a bridge to build relationship with the community.
Wellness—Wellness lessons are continuing.
