Rotary Foundation Thought is about micro credit.

  • In Cuzco, Peru Rotarians contributed $10,000 to a partnering association, Asociacion MIDE, which provided small loans to 288 low-income women.
  • In six months these women improved their businesses and living standards, lifting them out of extreme poverty.
  • While local Rotarians had the opportunity to work together to develop the project and approve the system of loans, the participants learned to use, administer and benefit from financial credit.
  • In the process, the women improved their self-esteem as they acquired entirely new roles of financial responsibility for their families.
