How It Works

MICROFINANCING

Grassroots microfinancing organizations offer training, support, and a reliable method of saving, borrowing, and growing a business. Individuals begin saving. Farmers help each other prepare their farms.

GROUP SUPPORT

Small groups train together and support each other in planning their income projects.

WELL-BEING

When the loan is repaid (or the living animal loan is retired by passing on an offspring), the income project grows in success. Savings grows. Family nutrition, health, schooling improves.

TRANSFORMATION

People who have struggled have transformed themselves into donors and leaders, helping their neighbors, solving community issues.

SUCCESS

MPA’s partners strive to get people on the ladder to climb out of extreme poverty. MPA’s role is to widen the rungs: we get as many people as possible on the ladder.
