Microfinance Client – Betty

Studies in the developing world have shown that when women gain incomes, family money is more likely to be spent on nutrition, education, medicine & housing. Women in Africa re-invest 90% of their income back into their households compared to 30-40% for men. We’ve witnessed this first hand in many countries across the world. Stories like Betty Abio’s, who we met in March with our partners Finca, go to the heart of why the impact of microfinance ripples so powerfully through communities and across generations.
