Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy August!
Power of Love's micro loans program is committed to increasing the skill set of women living in resource poor communities. In the first six months of this year, 450 women received business training and our goal is to train an additional 300 women by December.
Power of Love's micro loans program provides multiple loans, business training, and ongoing support to vulnerable women in Zambia. The provision of training in entrepreneurial skills, three consecutive loans, and ongoing business support has been critical in building a community of women leaders and entrepreneurs.
Dear Friend: Happy April! We are happy to share that Power of Love launched a Clean Water project on World Water Day, March 25. This project provides training and safe water filtration systems to families who do not have access to clean water. Access to clean water will prevent water borne diseases, such as typhoid, cholera, dysentery, Hepatitis A etc.
The Power of Love team is grateful for your continued support and dedication to empower vulnerable women, educate children, and alleviate poverty. Your continued support is building a community of empowered and self-reliant women entrepreneursRationale for a Microloans program and the Impact of COVID
Dear Friend: Happy December!
Impact of COVID, climate change: In the past 3-4 years, more countries are facing growing levels of food insecurity and lack of income opportunities due to COVID, climate change, and conflict. One solution is to provide income generating skills and loans/financing to these families.
Most women enrolled in Power of Love’s micro loans program are growing their businesses and learning to become successful entrepreneurs. In addition to paying for food, medicines, school expenses for children the women enjoy a stable income, start building assets, and are more self-reliant in taking care of their health and expenses.
