Springboard for a small business
About this gift
Women in rural villages often dream of running a small business, but they lack the capital to turn those dreams into reality. In places like Uganda and Yemen, we help village women organize savings and loan associations, where they can pool together their household earnings in a strong box and take turns withdrawing micro-loans. After launching a small grocery store, tailor shop or other business they then repay their loans, filling the box with funds for another woman’s business plan.

What others say
Why they'll love a Rescue Gift
The IRC is the gold standard of aid groups working with refugees. I’ve seen it in action in Darfur, Chad, Central African Republic, Greece, Jordan, South Sudan and other places.
