MicroLoan Foundation Malawi is now a Truelift Aspirant 

MicroLoan Foundation achieved the first, ‘Aspirant’ level, in 2014 and has been recognised for the second ‘Emerging’ level milestone in May 2015. Truelift is a trust mark to signify commitment to positive and enduring change for people living in poverty and has defined four milestones on the journey to better serve clients living in poverty.

At the 2014 Microcredit Summit in Mexico, MicroLoan Foundation Malawi was presented with its Truelift Aspirant Milestone Certificate.

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.
