Give Big Change - Give a Green Grocery
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. $25 could underwrite the start-up costs of a modest green-grocery business. A hand-up with buying a few pounds of vegetables at wholesale, can help a mother or father work toward 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!
