Empowering the women of Niger through savings groups
Friday, March 12, 2021
Saddi Alhassane and Aissatou Alfari are members of two of 3,400 savings groups in Niger that World Vision works with. Empowered by World Vision and like-minded partners, community savings groups like Saddi and Aissatou's have been able to mobilise a total of 55,000 members and over 850,000 US dollars, allowing them to invest in income-generating activities and thus to be able to provide for their children.
More than 200,000 children from families in which one or more members are part of savings groups, are benefiting in various ways.
When women are empowered, their families and communities thrive!
