In the first week of March, for International Women’s Day, we’re encouraging you to celebrate the person you are today by looking back at where you came from and who inspired you along the way.
What you need to do:
1.Share a photo of yourself aged 5 (or younger) on your feed or story. Hashtag #CelebrateNominateDonate and tag @MicroLoanFoundation
2.Nominate 5 inspiring women in your life to take on the challenge too.
3.Finally, we ask that you donate just £5 to empower women facing poverty in sub-Saharan Africa.
Where is my £5 donation going?
Your donation will help a woman living in poverty in Malawi, Zambia or Zimbabwe to access business and financial literacy training. She will learn how to manage her finances, make a business plan and market her business which will give her the best possible chance for success.
As her business grows, she will have a reliable income. This will enable her to afford nutritious food, medicine and an education for her children, whilst scaling up and growing her business. Your donation will give her the chance to thrive as an entrepreneur and achieve her dreams.
Together we can empower women to lift their families and communities out of poverty.
