May 2021 - Wishing All Moms a Happy Mother's Day
Dear friend: As Mother's day draws near, we are thinking of mothers and aunts in Africa who cannot afford food, medicines, and rent for their families and school expenses for their children. Most women in these communities lack marketable skills and have no regular source of income. COVID, last year, aggravated the situation. To support vulnerable moms and aunts, 380 women were provided with business training and 80 women started new businesses this year. In the next few months, earnings from businesses will pay for necessities, and school expenses. By the end of 2021, we expect new loan recipients to have learnt to save regularly, are more financially literate, purchased household items such as TV's, chairs etc., and look forward to a healthier future.
Our goal is for loan recipients to continue running their businesses, build an asset base, and keep children in school. Please donate generously so we can continue to improve the quality of life of vulnerable families. Every dollar counts. And, as always, 100% of your donations go towards programs and no part is used for overheads.
Your friends at the Power of Love Foundation
