25 loans for women
Catholic Relief Services-USCCB
Many families in rural Egypt live in extreme poverty. Poor women don’t have easy access to small loans or basic financial services. Without these resources their families remain burdened by many hardships, hunger and illnesses that could be prevented through a very basic regular income.
Your gift will provide small loans to reduce poverty and suffering. Many women in rural Egypt contribute to their household income by operating small home businesses, but often have a hard time breaking even. CRS and Egyptian partners provide loans and technical assistance to women in Minia who wish to increase their family incomes by starting or expanding small businesses such as raising small animals and poultry, sewing, agriculture and retailing. Your generous gift of $90 will provide loans and business counseling to 25 impoverished women for one year.
