Microloan Foundation Usa Inc
Our vision is a world where all those living in poverty have the opportunity to build better lives for themselves and their families. Our mission is to provide the poorest women in sub-Saharan Africa with the tools and skills to enable them to work their own way out of poverty. By providing them with the skills and tools to start small businesses we support them to become self-sufficient for their daily needs. Over time the money they generate from their own effort helps to ensure food security, improve housing, access to healthcare, and an education for their children. We encourage them to make savings. Savings give them confidence in their ability to weather whatever life throws at them. With up to 99% of our loans repaid, we can use the money again and again to help more and more women.
GiveDirectly's mission is to reshape international giving, making unconditional, direct cash transfers to the poor the benchmark against which other interventions are evaluated. We believe the best way of achieving this mission is by maximizing cash delivered to the poor, with the ultimate aim of ending extreme poverty.
