MicroFinancing Partners in Africa (MPA) raises funds through grants and events to support our partners in Africa. We provide funds to accelerate the work of our partners in Africa, where the proposition between lender and program is a business proposition, one that is made possible by the concept of microfinancing. When people in a community are able to earn a steady, even if it is modest, income, they step up and meet their civic obligations. This strengthens the community, solidifying the bonds between neighbors, and has the potential to allow for the economic foundation for community development projects such as schools, drug and alcohol rehab centers, health centers, and water sources. When people can provide for their needs, both within their families and within their communities, peace can happen.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
