Microfinance loan programs are a powerful tool in breaking the cycle of extreme poverty, offering opportunities for individuals and communities to generate sustainable income and achieve financial stability.
One in three Africans live below the global poverty line which is currently $2.15 USD/day.
Poverty means daily hunger; child malnutrition; lack of access to clean water, shelter, and healthcare; little or no opportunity to go to school or learn a trade; constant fear for the future; and increased risk of exploitation and abuse.
Microfinancing “the MPA way” challenges members to invest or save first, create a sense of community by helping group members overcome obstacles while managing income projects, and manage clear and fixed repayment terms.
