MICRO-LOANS

The women’s empowerment program distributes micro-loans to vulnerable women to start small businesses in their community including growing agriculture goods, selling trade goods, or sewing. These women grow spiritually and economically through the process as they fellowship together and earn a small income to support their families.

WOMEN IN EAST AFRICA 

  • 87% live in rural agricultural areas

  • 63% live on less than $1.25 a day

  • 31% have electricity in their home

  • 39% have running water in their homes

Faith First: The women we serve learn about Jesus Christ

OUR BELIEFS

MICRO-LOANS

  • Loans are difficult to get in Africa because of poverty

  • TLAfrica gives $50-$100 loans to needy women in the DR Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, and Kenya

  • Women open a small business in their community

  • TLAfrica ministers to the women during weekly meetings

  • Women are required to pay back the loan within one year

“Living or dying, it was the same for me”

SEWING SCHOOL

  • There is a need for sewing training; clothes in East Africa are mostly hand-sewn

  • TLAfrica selects women to attend a year-long sewing class

  • TLAfrica gifts the women a $200 sewing machine and supplies at graduation

  • Women open their own sewing business and earn a small income to support their families

“I am no longer ‘a thing’ as my husband regarded me”
