Give An Alternative Gift

Give hope this holiday

Give a gift that gives more than twice. When you fund a microloan in honor of someone, your honoree will be especially touched with your thoughtfulness, and the woman or man in Africa, who is now able to receive a small loan to start an income project, will get a start on the climb out of extreme poverty. Even better, when that small loan is repaid, your gift continues to be put to work as new loans for more people!

Give a Cow - $800

How your gift makes a difference

Your gift could make a difference for another family like Joseph and Christina who prepared their farm, planted grass, built a shed, and received a living loan of a pregnant cow from MPA. Now they have better nutrition and extra income from the milk, a more productive farm, and hope. They will make a gift as well when they pass on the first female calf to another farming family.



Give a Boat -$600

support an entrepreneur

Your gift could make a difference for another entrepreneur like Liliana, who first saved and then took a small loan to start an income project. After growing her business, she now has financed a fishing boat. Now she has a good income and dreams of adding a soda machine to her lake-side business. When she repays her loans, she is funding the gift of possibility to another person to climb out of poverty.



Give a Piglet $200

Helping women in africa

Your gift could make a difference for a post fistula woman like Nasakka who suffered an obstetric fistula injury in childbirth. She received training in the raising of pigs, built a shed, and received a living loan of a piglet. Now she has income from the sale of piglets, better nutrition, and hope. She will make a gift as well when she passes on two piglets back to the program.



Give a Sewing Machine - $100

How Can You Give Hope This Holiday?

Your gift could make a difference for a woman like Neema who joined a revolving loan support group, prepared, and received a small loan which helped her purchase a sewing machine. Now she has a thriving tailoring business and is thinking of hiring. Her repayment of her loan funds a hand up to other women in the revolving fund group.



Give a Water Filter - $60

Clean water saves lives

Your gift could make a difference for another family like Victoria, who saved and built a school but needed to provide clean water. A small loan for a water filter helped her provide clean water to her students. She will make a gift as well when she repays her water loan, funding clean water for another family.



Give a School Uniform - $30

Empower the next generation

Your gift, pooled with other gifts, could make a difference for students like the Masaai girls who attend St. Francis Vocational School. These students are receiving scholarships, classes in microfinancing, and a supply of reusable period pads. In return, they have committed to mentor the younger students and fund period pads for another student when they can.



Give a Green Grocery Item - $25

Help a business get started

Your gift could make a difference for a woman like Doris who saved, borrowed twice what she had in savings, and received a small loan to start a grocery. Now she says, “I will always be grateful because this made it possible for me to feed my family.” She will make a gift as well when she repays her loan, which makes the funding available to another person striving to start a small income project.



Give Transformation $1,000

Start a group income project

Your gift could make a difference for a self help group like the Welezo Friends who have saved together, and when they have enough, they give loans to each member to build their income projects. As the loans are repaid to the group with interest, bigger loans can be given. Your gift boost their savings and boost their projects.



Give Sobriety - $2,000

Provide freedom

Your gift could fund two months of operating expenses for the Levuka Centre, a 40-bed inpatient sobriety program which, in addition to leading patients through the twelve steps, offer hope to those patients’ families in their climb out of extreme poverty.



Give Hope - $3,000

Share hope for a family in need

Your gift could fund a year’s salary for a Tumaini (“hope” in Kiswahili) Social Worker whose mission is to reach out to those begging on the streets and in the slums to start saving even a few shillings. The Tumaini engage and problem solve and give a hand up to those in desperate situations, showing them it can be done through very small loans, some as small as $5.00 USD.



Give a Group Project - $5,000

Share the goodness of microfinance

Your gift could make a difference for projects like a village health center which has started an income project renting tents, tables, and chairs for local events like funerals and weddings. The VHCs commit resources to manage the project, and use the proceeds to fund microfinancing education and other services.



Give Village Capacity - $10,000

A hand up for a village

Your gift could make a difference for village groups whose members are cooperating in a larger capacity project, such as a cooperative milk collection center owned by a group of cow farmers. Your matching funds allow them to afford this faster. As they repay the loan, other village groups can benefit.



Give Where the Need is Greatest

A hand up from poverty to possibility

Your gift will make a difference by empowering MPA to apply it where the need is greatest.
