Microfinance for Women
In 2018, generous donors helped provide new loans, business training, refresher training, and on-site business mentoring to 400 women entrepreneurs in Zambia. These program activities resulted in a huge and sustained impact on hundreds of vulnerable women and children in a resource poor community in Lusaka, Zambia.

Dear Power of Love Friend : Happy July! Today we would like you to meet Betty, who used her love for technology and the Power of Love's micro loans program to change her life. Betty wanted to use her loan funds to sell hardware items to a local car workshop and located a supplier via a google search.
Judith started selling peanut butter at a roadside stand after she received her first loan in November 2016. Within a few weeks she had to move her stand as she did not have a license to sell on the road. She then started a home delivery business as her customers liked her product. She faced increased competition as more women in her area started making and selling peanut butter.
A big thank you! The Power of Love team and families in our micro loans program truly appreciate your support and generosity. Your generosity and caring for Zambian women and their families is creating a legacy of empowered women, and a stronger more self-reliant community in Zambia.
