After running loan programs from their combined savings, women's groups in Uganda wanted larger loan pools. Since last May, 14 groups received $30,000 from TCP Global. They have a perfect payment record on 325+ loans issued to date. 
TCP Global is ready to partner with more of the Village Savings and Loan Associations serving over 20 million participants in 77 countries. Currently, we work with VSLA partners in Uganda, Kenya, Nigeria and Niger. 
On 5-10-20, Ariguyi and Ama Ichora women's groups gave their first 15 loans. By January, they expanded from 30 to 50 women per group. Payments on all 52 loans, have been on time. Above, Ariguyi women are making their January repayments. 
As soon as payments are received, funds are invested in new loans. These 5 Ama Ichora women received loans in January. As their loan pools grow, women receive larger loans and their businesses grow faster. 
Like Candiru, most TCP borrowers in Uganda are market vendors or subsistence farmers for whom a $30 loan means they can earn enough to feed their families and save a small amount. A few borrowers, like those below have reached the next rung on the ladder to economic success. 
Winnie received a $280 loan for her beauty salon next to the Yumbe market and saw her daily income increase 5-fold.
Extra earnings helped her buy a manicure table and dryer to expand her business and improve her ability to care for her family. 
Zam Zam from Care Parents women's group runs a kiosk to sell groceries. 
A TCP Global loan allowed her to stock more items, improve sales and provide three meals a day for her children. With the additional earnings, she recently bought a machine to make fruit juice to sell. 
CCEDUC, the TCP Global partner in Uganda mentoring the 14 women's groups, will sign an MOU with the Uganda government to introduce TCP Global micro-loans to the world's largest Refugee Camp,   
Funds have been sent to CCEDUC to open TCP Global loan programs to increase loan capital for two Village Savings and Loan association groups in the Bidi Bidi camp for refugees from South Sudan. If these are successful, more willl follow. 
While CCEDUC is not paid to mentor the VSLA groups, they can earn funds if the groups are successful. CCEDUC used recent earnings to buy 2 bikes to use in visiting the Refugee Camp, 15 miles away.

How you can support TCP Global:
 
1) Connect us with potential loan partners in marginalized communities like Chris did in Uganda.

2) Forward this notice so others can learn from a TCP Global borrower how a little capital can have a huge impact. 

3) Volunteer to mentor a loan program in a country you know well like Josh does. 

4) Make a
donation like members of the Incarnate Word Academy Class of '64 in St.Louis, Missouri
When TCP Global co-founder, Helene Ballmann Dudley left for Peace Corps her classmates were there to support her. Over 50 years later, they continue to support her Peace Corps work. 

I contribute to TCP Global because as an idealistic Kennedy-era teenager I was convinced the Peace Corps was the answer to all the world’s ills. Nothing has caused me to change my mind.                                             Sherry Brown
 



I like the premise of TCP Global. Rather than giving one-time-help, your organization gives your clients ongoing means to support themselves and their families.                                                       Ann Harding Beckring
 

 



I donate because I want to support people in developing countries who have the vision of a better future and the work ethic to make it happen.                                                                                     Pat O’Brien Dolan 
 

I am not an adherent of “trickle down” economics. I support TCP because it puts money in the hands of grassroots entrepreneurs, where I think it does the most good for individuals, for the local economy, and ultimately for the overall economy of the country.               Peggy Sievers Fagen
