A journey out of poverty
Margaret and her family hope to finally have a place to call home this Christmas. Like many women, she joined MicroLoan in the hope of breaking the cycle of poverty
Hello valued supporter
As many of us are gearing up for the festive season, no doubt filled with carols, crackers and possibly a glass or two of mulled wine, the reality for the women we support is very different.
But you can help change this. Make a donation this Christmas and make a real difference.
And remember, because most of MicroLoan Foundation Australia’s expenses are paid for by our sponsors, an average of 95c in each $1 you give goes where it’s needed – to women in poverty.
Margaret is striving for a life that is not defined by poverty. Economic and political instability make this difficult to achieve.
There are very few jobs available in the village where she lives.
“We are young people, we want to grow, develop and build a life for our family but without employment, this is very difficult.”
Margaret’s life is undergoing a transformation thanks to the business training, support and loans she is receiving from MicroLoan Foundation.
She was one of our first clients in Zimbabwe and started a chicken rearing business with her loans.
Watch the video to see just how much Margaret’s life is changing.
The business really is transforming the family’s life. Margaret and her family will soon have a place to call home thanks her new business.
But there are so many more women who are still struggling. Many families go hungry for almost three months of the year. Being part of MicroLoan can change this.
A donation of US$157.50* can unlock a starter loan for a woman in Zimbabwe (*US$90 in Zambia and US$45 in Malawi) so that she can take her first steps as an entrepreneur
