We are donating for every water bottle sold to support Just Small Change. Their mission is to give business opportunities to the very poor in developing countries.
Just Small Change is a microfinance charity, supporting businesses in developing countries. By providing small scale loans, saving schemes and business training they enable individuals to start small businesses to build a pathway out of poverty.
This brilliant scheme, contributes to economic development in poor countries. An individual with a regular income can meet their own daily needs, including food, school fees, books and uniform, basic healthcare services and housing allowing them the opportunity to achieve a life free from poverty with dignity and purpose.
We support Just Small Change in their objective to finance small businesses in developing countries. This is a successful project; following three six-month loans most borrowers have saved enough to no longer require microfinance. The funds are then recycled to a new borrower.
In short, we help Just Small Change give individuals the chance of a better life. For each bottle of water we sell, we give a portion of the earnings to the organisation, and we’re delighted to say that it is going well…
Not so long ago, Coinadrink were part of the Ladies For A Better Life group. With a portion of the money made from our bottled coolers, we were able to donate to the cause and help these women start up their own business and make a name for themselves.
One of which is Carolyne Anyango who bought a sewing machine with the loan and was able to forge a living by making and selling new clothes. Now she is able to support her family and allow her children to have a proper education.
Now, we are helping another group; Focussed Ladies. Like Ladies For A Better Life, it helps women in South Africa get on the path to a better life by giving them a loan and helping them start their own business.
Just one of the success stories is Jane Achieng Otiu. She is a full-time mother who’s business is running a kiosk, and the Kshs 25,000 loan she received certainly went a long way to helping her being a success. She is now able to provide all her children with three meals a day, and an education, which is something that simply wasn’t possible before.
This has all changed now of course...and to understand in more detail about what we have helped achieve, visit our blog now!
