Problem

More than one billion people are condemned to live on less than $1 per day. Such a crisis demands tangible solutions, and when put into practice on a wide scale, microfinance can help the poor escape poverty.

The Gift

Your gift will allow the Grameen Foundation Educational Scholarship Program to cover the public school fees for five years of a borrower's child. Microfinance is one of the most powerful solutions to poverty in existence today. It attacks poverty at its roots and allows a poor person to gain a foothold against day-to-day impoverishment. Microfinance – small loans complemented by savings, insurance and other services -- allows a person to buy an animal, tool, or other asset to start or grow her own business. As the enterprise grows, so does her social standing; empowerment; family’s education and nutrition levels; and job opportunities in her community. Grameen Foundation provides training, financing and technology to microfinance institutions worldwide so they can serve more.
