UNLOCKING POTENTIAL FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
VISIONFUND ZAMBIA IMPACTS THE LIVES OF CHILDREN BY PROVIDING POOR BUSINESS OWNERS WITH ACCESS TO FINANCIAL SERVICES. THIS ENABLES THEM TO EXPAND THEIR SMALL BUSINESS AND MEET THE FOOD SECURITY AND EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF THEIR CHILDREN.
VisionFund Zambia’s services stretch into the rural districts of Zambia that have the highest levels of poverty. This enables the rural poor to maximise their entrepreneurship opportunities and give them a fighting chance to move out of poverty’s entrapment.
Established in 2003, VisionFund Zambia has been providing small business loans to entrepreneurs running micro businesses, which provides greatly needed working capital to increase their business volume and consequently increase the income for their families. By focusing on women, who constitute about 70% of the clientele base, we have been able to complement World Vision’s efforts of improving the lives of the most poverty stricken communities in Zambia.
