Nine VSLA groups are actively meeting with and being mentored by Joe and Sullay. We are serving nearly 250 people in the area, with 54% of them women. Jenneh, Joe and Sullay have also been training many of the groups on sustainable conservation agriculture techniques. Jenneh is especially effective at encouraging and engaging women and appears to have found her calling! The myriad societal benefits from these VSLAs include access to affordable loans that keep both the principal and the interest in the community, sustainable financial services, insurance against shocks, a path to community trust and leadership development opportunities. We are incredibly proud of the work that Joe and Sullay are doing, and the work of the VSLA members themselves.
