Thanks to Peace Corps connections like Potentiel Terre (PT), TCP Global can reach even this tiny village where Potal group borrowers live.

There is full transparency with the women watching each  transaction and verifying the cash. 

Potentiel Terre, recommended to TCP Global by Friends of Niger, serves as fiscal agent for this and other groups that lack the bank account and computer access necessary to participate in an international program. Once the group has all the funds they want to manage, they will  continue on their own. 
Here, the president of Niyya group on the left, the treasurer in the middle and the provisional secretary count the money and verify transactions. 
Currently 8 more PT groups request loan programs. Due to a temporary cash-flow problem, TCP Global is using limited resources to only honor requests for expansion from existing partners. With your help, we can again accept new partners. 
A workshop, financed by loan program earnings, provided the Husa'a group with training in savings, leadership, education and entrepreneurship

In just 18 months, Potentiel Terre and the 11 groups for which it serves as fiscal agent, have issued 711 loans worth $73,250.

The 1st loan is paid in 2 months with weekly installments; the 2nd may be 3-4 months and subsequent loans longer. Groups structure their loan programs to meet their needs, using Potentiel Terre guidelines.

TCP Global requests your support to:

1) Connect TCP Global to a grassroots partner like YOGI in Nepal. Join the TCP Global team in zoom sessions to support the loan program.  

2) Forward this notice so others can learn from Judith in Uganda the difference a small loan makes.

3) Volunteer like Kenney, to mentor a loan program in a country you know well.

4) Make a donation like RPCVs of Chicago, Kansas City, Long Island and Madison-Wisconsin, and Friends of Colombia and Nepal.  
Until Peace Corps is back in the field, TCP Global is a good substitute for Peace Corps Partnership Projects for supporting development in small and remote communities around the world.
