Outcomes Your Clients Make Possible

Women’s Savings and Loans Groups

We believe in change that lasts. And that comes from farmers having control over their resources and the information and expertise to make decisions themselves.

Heifer invests alongside farmers and other partners, building sustainable businesses and inclusive markets that enable farmers to earn a living income.

How it Works

Working capital is vital to any business – especially farming, where the costs of land, livestock and farm equipment can be significant.

Each self-help group sets up a central fund from which members can borrow money to grow their businesses. Groups are usually women-led, and the majority of membership is comprised of women.

They then lend that money to one another to help members meet immediate and long-term needs. While Heifer provides trainings, the groups themselves are self-led, with members setting goals together as they hold each other accountable and build trust amongst themselves.

Every time their group meets, members deposit an agreed upon amount with the group’s treasurer. As the savings build, members borrow money from the fund, using it to scale up their business, start a new venture, or cover the cost of an emergency.
