We plan to grow significantly over 2009. We’ll be working with our patron, Simon Tedeschi and with our team of supporters to create events and let more people know about what we do.
Our first major event this year will be a MLFA awareness and Malawi promotion day to be held in the Wall Street of Australia: Martin Place, Sydney.
The promotion is being organised by Clive Hughes, an enthusiastic new member of the MLFA team. Clive recently stepped down as the CEO of a medium sized property company in Sydney, and is keen to show how capitalism, and the ‘super-sub-prime loans’ that MLFA deal in, can actually work to help the poor in a way that seems to be failing the rich. It should be a fun and informative day where we will share the stories of some of the women we lend to.
We will be in Martin Place 11:30am-2:30pm on Thursday 30th April – hopefully you will be able to get along, or possibly even help on the day if you are interested. We look forward to seeing you then.
