Microfinance project in need of funding, Kenya

Requested by

Action First For Progress (AFFP)

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Action First for Progress is a non-governmental organization registered in Kenya – its main objective is poverty alleviation in rural areas and semi-arid areas in Kenya where small business owners are perishing due to lack of economical education. Our project is for educating poor people on how to do business, so that they can develop the economy of the country as well as providing a good life in the future for their children.

We are primarily working in the Rift Valley province (Kenya), an area with many tribes who are doing businesses, primarily small scale businesses providing for their daily income. Provided with support, their capabilities could improve considerable. Small scale business people play an important role for economies around the world. The small business owners are very hardworking people, but they are lacking support of finance. Provided with micro-loans they could as well improve considerable.

What is your project and how will it help?

Our project is a micro finance/ economy development project. It will help the community if we uplift their minds on how to do business; for example in how to keep records of their business and how to open bank accounts in different banks in Kenya.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

We kindly accept donations. You can also partner with AFFP through self-help groups and in groups community based groups which are registered groups by the government of Kenya

Please detail the resources that you need.

250.000 US dollars to open and maintain workshops in different districts in the Rift Valley province, Kenya.
