Recognizing World Relief a leader in Micro Finance

In last weeks email newsletter we recognized some of the top micro finance providers as ways to give to something sustainable. Hope and Opportunity International have already been recognized on the website, so now lets take a moment to continue to introduce World Relief with some statistics courtesy of Gareth Evans, Deputy Director of Economic Development with World Relief: 

o        10 Micro finance programs
o        2 agricultural development businesses
o        Over 150,000 borrowers
o        More than $32 Million in outstanding loans
o        Nearly $2,000,000 in savings mobilized
o        88% of their clients are women
o        95% of their loans have been repaid
o        Our portfolio is extremely strong with less than 3% at risk of default (measured at portfolio in default > 30 days)

See www.wr.org for more information about World Relief.
