July 24 and 25: PMI Training on Microfinance Concepts and Tools

July 24 and 25: PMI Training on Microfinance Concepts and Tools

In an effort to raise awareness and build capacity on microfinance in North Kivu, DR Congo, Pro-Microfinance launched a monthly training program that benefits all its current and potential clients.

The first session took place from June 24- 25, 2011 with over 42 attendees. During the training participants learned what is microfinance and how PMI’s microfinance services can help them start or grow their own small businesses and lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

Sunday May 22, 2011 from 3 t 5 pm: Harambe Fundraiser at Cedar lane Unitarian Universalist Church. *Harambe: in Swahili, harambe means "working together in unity" or "let's pull together". The harambe concept is used throughout Africa to initiate projects that require people to work together and pool their resources. In true African style, harambe is also one big party, uniting the community in support of a chosen cause or causes.

This was a great event organized to celebrate Annette Scarpita’s birh day that she donated to 3 worthy causes. A Storyteller weaved stories about PMI, AMCAV and Papers to pearls. A master percussionist from Ghana performed traditional African music. The participants enjoyed the African cuisine with special African dishes by Denise Muhani. Thanks to all who came!

They also learned the importance of forming or joining Solidarity groups and how to hold meetings in their own groups. A detailed description of services provided by Pro-Microfinance DR Congo was given to them: In-kind loans, cash loans, savings, etc. Attendees were satisfied with the training and expressed interest to participate in future trainings organized by PMI. Refreshments were offered at the end by PMI to provide the opportunity for participants to network and exchange best practices.
