Gifty, a farmer, business owner, and mother of 5 in Self-Help’s micro-credit program explains: “Access to loans from financial institutions are very difficult to get, especially for us in the rural areas; so, I was excited when I was introduced to and accepted into the micro-credit program and able to access loans with very flexible terms,” Gifty said. Gifty used her loan to invest in her farming business and was able to increase yields as a result. With the profits and ongoing support from Self-Help, she has been able to expand her businesses to make enough money to help pay for her children’s educations, and is even expanding the family’s home. Help us spread the word! Forward this invitation to friends and colleagues now! Contact: Nora TobinEmail: nora@selfhelpinternational.orgPhone: (319) 352-4040 More Info:
