This organization is one of the centers of a respected microcredit provider. This organization provides microcredits (small loans) to small and starting businesses. In this way, these entrepreneurs are able to invest in e.g. the purchase of a cow, sewing machine, or shop, in order to improve their financial position in the future. The focus is on the self-development of the entrepreneurs, rather than just lending money.
