In Microloans: Power in Unity

Meeting Mapendo: Microloans, Pigs, and Paying it Forward

Why is Mapendo smiling? With the $100 she received from the Power in Unity group, Action Kivu’s savings & loan project, she bought a pig, and is able to sell the piglets for $20 each, allowing her to pay back her loan. The group operates with a “pay it forward” model, and part of the repayment invests in more women being able to join the group.

Mapendo is an active part of our community, and her smile is unforgettable. We previously posted about her and her friend in farming here.
