Women's Microcredit

A tiny loan can make a huge difference for a woman who wants to create a business to support her family. Marguerita was able to buy a boat so she could harvest plants that grow in the middle of Lake Titicaca. The three-hour rowing trip, which is much more dangerous on a raft, provides the source material for sleeping mats she creates and sells. This business allows her to provide food and a home for her family. Your gift blesses not only mothers like Marguerita, but their extended families who may also receive help from these industrious women.
