Wellshire Microfinance Report: March 2013
This week new loan opportunities appeared for people in Haiti and Zimbabwe. Since Global Service Ministries is quite involved in these two countries, it might be a good thing to support loans in these countries, which are some of the poorest on earth. The loan applicants in Haiti are two groups that WMF has made loans to before. Both were repaid.
Our team made 58 loans this month. Several individuals made multiple loans, and the team made eight loans at our regular meeting. We also added one member this month. Our grand totals are now 48 members, 452 microloans in 53 countries worth $11,650.
If you’re curious about where most of our loans are made, here are the top ten countries that have received WMF loans: 1. Kenya (49) 2. Peru (38) 3. Uganda (27) 4. Ecuador (20) 5. Philippines (20) 6. Colombia (17) 7. Lebanon (16) 8. El Salvador (15)
9. Bolivia (12) 10. Cambodia (11).
