Give the gift of microgrants, as opposed to microloans, to provide Guatemalan women independence and facilitates long-term, sustainable livelihoods.
For ultra-poor individuals surviving on less than $1.25 per day, paying back even the most modest microloan is an impossible obstacle when chronic malnutrition, poor health, illiteracy, and economic insecurity are a way of life.
Women, who bear a disproportionate weight of the world's poverty, have the potential to be the engine of economic and developmental progress; the key is investing in their capabilities. Your gift will provide grant money to start or expand a microenterprise, fostering independence and facilitating long-term, sustainable livelihoods.
70% of your gift goes directly to our partner organization. The remaining funds go to the gift of compassion envelope, packaging, and other foundation overhead.
