The best solution to Poverty


Self Help Groups with Savings and Loan Association

The programme has Facilitator's Guide, Participant's Workbook and Slides for projection, if a projector is available

This is our main programme based on the growing success in many countries of ‘self help’ savings and loan associations.

Our hope is that the information and guidance provided will encourage and enable many participants of Workstart Group to save together and to develop plans to start or grow their own income generating activity, either as a group or as individuals.

Studying and working together builds positive relationships and there will be great value in the group continuing to meet regularly both to manage their savings and to network, sharing news
