Loan for a woman
Many women in poor countries suffer the strictures of second-class citizenship. They're determined and resourceful, but they lack access to the resources that would allow them to put smart business ideas to work for the benefit of their families.
Recognizing that women worldwide are the engines of advancement for their families, Mercy Corps invests in the small businesses of female entrepreneurs. We provide training and loans to help women turn their dreams into successful enterprises, which not only fulfill unmet community needs but also help fund their children's education and ensure their families' well-being. A small loan is often the difference between a life of poverty and a life of new opportunity for women in developing countries.
