Need: LIVELIHOOD

In my organisation, we have a program we call the Saving and Loans Association (SLA), whos aim is to help women save in their groups and latter be able to get the monnies saved as loans, which in turn they payback with interest.
this project has been running for a while now, but due to the floods we experienced last farming season, many such clubs have failed to contribute anything because they have no source of ncome as they depend so much on farming.
therefor, my request is for funds which can help to boost these SLAs, they comprise mostly of women. Apart from this, any immediate help would be appreciated in terms of food and other basic neccesities to help alleviate the hunger going on now, as crops are not ready for harvest.

to sustain each family we request for a donation of 350USD by 500 families which is 17,500 USD.

To revamp the SLAs, we request for a donation of 500USD.

Your kind response to this request is highly appreciated.
Let us remain united to save ourselves from the economic cruelty of our communities.

God Bless.
