Micro Banking

It is to be expected that the majority of the whole- sellers (re-filling stations) as well as the housewives (gas cylinders/ cookers) can procure the equipment by making use of a micro credit facility only.

In addition, they belong to a sector of the society that has never been in contact with any bank at all and have therefore to be introduced to a low key banking institute of a very rural nature and in the direct area.

To utmost simplify this process; the Foundation is acting as an intermediary to reach these potential clients; by approaching churches, schools, NGO’s, woman organisations and organising information and promotion sessions.

A representative of the nearest rural bank will always be in attendance so that provisional loan agreements can be explained or already signed.
