For every £10 we lend, there is £100 economic impact and an even greater social impact. Money spent developing our self-reliant groups reaches isolated and disadvantaged people enabling them to turn their lives around.
We need donations because:
- Demand for our loans far outstrips the funds we have available to meet it. We have taken a decision to keep our interest rates affordable for our borrowers and they do not cover our costs of making the loans
- Demand for our self-reliant groups is steadily rising and there are costs associated with developing and facilitating these, until they are independent and self-sustaining.
