The smartest, most durable approach to ending poverty is to equip the poor to do it themselves. Over the last 9 years, and with your help, we have seen first-hand that impoverished communities can be

Village Savings and Loans Scheme

The Village Savings and Loan (VSL) model is a self-managed and self-capitalized microfinance methodology. By having its members mobilize and intermediate local pools of investment finance, it offers savings, insurance and credit services in markets outside the reach of formal institutions.
