Central Tanzania is one of the poorest places in the world. Family incomes average less than $1 per day. Most families are subsistence farmers working an acre or two of land. There are few sources of loans.
Since 2007 Iringa Hope has been helping communities start up micro-loan funds. The funds are set up as a SACCOS (Savings and Credit Cooperative) under Tanzanian law.
Iringa Hope is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity.
Your donations will help provide capital for loans and training and support for loan recipients.
