Provide 300 or more loans through a Microcredit project. The project will offer financial literacy training before loan application. Target borrowers will be women in coffee, youth owned business, small rural successful entrepreneurs who remain under capitalized, farmers who need bridge loans to capture high yields or expand service to meet their growing community needs. There will be emphasis on rain water harvesting, environment restoration, and solar power.

The loans will impact many economically disadvantage people in rural areas who are generally over looked by traditional lending institutions.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
