MicroLoan Foundation News
There’s still time to double your donation!
December 16, 2016
You can change the future of a child living in poverty this Christmas.
We are halfway through our appeal matching month and have already raised an amazing £12,000. Thank you to everyone who has already donated to help many women give their children a better future.
Remember, when you give to MicroLoan Foundation this Christmas, you will make an even bigger difference. Two of our long standing supporters have generously offered to match any gifts we raise from this appeal up to £20,000. So all donations received by 31st December will be doubled.
If we can raise another £8,000 we can maximise this generous offer and help even more women give their children a better future.
“My life has changed so much since my mother started taking loans from MicroLoan to do business. My elder brother failed to go further with his education due to lack of money, but it is a different story for me.”

When you invest in a woman, you invest in her children.
A donation of £100 will help us fund a woman for a year with the loans, training and support that she needs to start a business. With the regular income she earns she can send her children to school. With the savings she puts aside, she can make sure they finish school.
How it Works
We provide loans and ongoing business training to female entrepreneurs. When they're able, they pay back the loan. We use this money to make more loans, to more women.
