Microloans and More

Through the Women’s Group organized by HHH’s Community Director, Golds Mithe Joseph, the women of Noyau now have an opportunity to develop and grow their own small businesses. Golds taught the women how to set up a business for themselves and she’s implemented a micro-financing program to fund these businesses. She has taught the women how to organize, run their businesses, pay back the loans and also set up a savings plan for themselves. Because the women are doing so well and paying back the loans, additional women have been able to join this program and some have been able to borrow larger amounts for growing their businesses.

Sharing some early microloan success stories with you…

As a Result of the Women’s Group and Microloan Program…

The women have grown a very strong sense of community through the group, which has spilled over into the betterment of the community as a whole. They are now gathering and working on improving their roads one rock at a time and helping to aid in the success of the new elementary school being built in their community.

The pictures below show the initiative that the women took to improve part of the road in Noyau. In these pictures are some of the women in the group and people in the community working together to gather, haul, and place rocks for rebuild roadbeds.
