Help Expand a Small Business

Quick Description

Many people in Africa are living below the bread line. In Sierra Leone, 60% of the population lives on less than $1.25 a day. Those desiring to start a small business or expand an existing one do not have the financial resources or business training needed to do so.

Your support and this gift package will help to change that by providing business startup training and an interest-free small business loan. The much needed "seed money" will empower a business enabling it to go to the next level. The business training provided will help ensure that they succeed.

Your donation will provide a "hand up" out of poverty and assistance towards a new start. We together will provide "booster shots" that will enable small businesses to move from making barely enough to meet their basic needs ("living from hand to mouth") to a point where they will expand - providing employment and contributing to national development. Thanks for helping to make their dreams come true!
