The HIFA team was able to quickly and successfully implement the school project in Uru Lokpaukwu, and the school was able to open its doors in September. With the help of donations, the building was adapted and the equipment was purchased. The women of the village are very grateful for the quick help and welcomed the sisters at a small celebration. The school project was a much-needed help, and we appeal for further support to secure funding and continue to provide educational opportunities for the children in Uru Lokpaukwu.
HIFA microcredits help women and men in Nigeria to start small businesses or run market stalls. HIFA charges only a small processing fee of 1%. Since 2009, over €10,000 has been disbursed as start-up capital, and many applicants have successfully repaid loans. Due to the project’s success, we are requesting further support in the amount of €10,000.
