Why micro loans?

They hit at the core reasons for poverty: lack of regular income, regular food supply, and lack of educational opportunity. Micro loans create sustainable incomes. They work! An independent study reports that 10,000 people a month are being pulled out of poverty through micro loans. Worldwide, they are repaid at a rate of 98%, and loaned out again and again. Micro loans are a hand up, not a hand out; they give the poor dignity and choice and provide a means to a sustainable income.
