Elevating Families from Poverty to Self-Reliance through Micro-loans with Business Training and Mentors
We help families elevate from poverty to self-reliance. To begin, a mother can start a business with a $200 micro-loan that includes mentoring and business classes. When the mother has income to care for the family:
- children eat consistently
- children attend school consistently
- children can get medical care as needed
For families in Ethiopia, the majority of their income goes to food. Often 70, 80 and even 90 percent of income goes to feeding their children, not even twice a day, leaving precious little for education or health needs.
What is a family’s social impact score?
The ratio of total amount spent on food divided by total income
