Give Big Change - Give a Sewing Machine
A hand-up in the form of funding for a loan to start a small business can be a life-changer. Jamii Bora/Yawezekana SACCO is working with members who are struggling in extreme poverty to set them up for success with a small business. $200 could underwrite the start-up costs of a modest tailoring business. A sewing machine, or similar capital equipment, can mean the ability to provide food for children, pay for school books and uniforms, purchase other household necessities from neighbors, and contribute to the community. This gift becomes a loan, which when repaid, is put to work over and over. This is Big Change! This comes with a personalized card to let your friends or family know that you have honored them with a Gift of Big Change.
