Stories from the women in The DR Congo!

It is wonderful to be back on PulseWire and reconnect to my community after months of being away. I am amazed to see how fast this community has grown. It is nice to see many new faces as well as familiar faces. I look forward to catching up on the new developments on PulseWire.

The last few months have been very exciting for First Step Initiative, as we continue to grow our microfinance efforts in the Congo. I am happy to report that this year alone, we have already serviced 80 loans and are working to reach another 120 women by year end. I wanted to take this opportunity to share this video with you so that you can hear the women in their own words: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrDShV7Ur5g. I have also attached a brochure with more stories. If you want to learn more about our work please visit us at www.firststepinitiative.net

Thank you,
