1-MICA's Project Apogee Takes Off --- Thanks To Generous Private Donations.
2-USAID continues to be a staunch supporter.
3-More Funds Are Needed To Help All Those Who Have Signed Up.
4-Micro Credit Opportunities provided to rural women in record numbers... as private donations respond to MICA appeals.
The Micro Credit Process:
Women sign up and form groups of ten. Each group names itself and decides on a project.
The loan is granted and repayment terms agreed upon. The work is shared and the revenues are collected.
When the loan is repaid, the group receives public recognition and a certificate - similar to a letter of credit.
Other Work Performed With the help of Project Apogee - Outreach, Needs Analysis, Field Studies, Networking With Grassroots Community, Agricultural Training, Literacy Training, Job Skill, Training, Nutrition Education, and Community and Personal Health (HIV AIDS Awareness and malaria prevention) included.
OUTREACH AND GRASS ROOTS SUPPORT ARE KEY TO MICA SUCCESS.
