Transparency has an increasing importance for companies
when making donations. By sharing our use of donations and stories of how the loans are used, we ensure good insights.
Community-embedded groups function independently and are in charge of the re-distribution of further loans. These groups ensure a higher repayment rate as the members can hold each other accountable.
As the donations stay within each community as microloans, there is the opportunity of ripple effects, going a long way beyond the initial donation.
Our research to identify projects and community-embedded groups is carried out human-centered and in close
cooperation with the communities.
To ensure a high level of transparency, we offer a storytelling training to our groups which accompanies the microloan process.
Through a private login, community members can access information on entrepreneurship, business development and financial planning. They can also reach out to other community-embedded groups to share best practices.
In Bidibidi, you only receive around 30 by 30 meters in total anyways, for you to build your hut, and to cultivate within that area - part of which may be rocky and not arable. So there is no way to produce enough food.
