PWRDF wants to double our impact in Mozambique with your help! We currently support 50 women through CCM de Pemba, a credit cooperative providing a safe place for women to keep their savings and access low-interest loans for small businesses. Profits are reinvested not only in their businesses, but in their families, accessing potable water, food, shelter, clothing and education. Adult women -- almost 70% of whom are illiterate -- learn to read at night school. All of this means women are empowered to become full partners in decision-making that affects not only their families but their communities.
We want to provide 50 more women with loans to start small businesses. Every $500 raised will provide a woman with a loan to start a small business, improving her own life, the life of her family, and her community.
