In 2008, Steve Henderson and James Sempere planted the concept of a microcredit program at a business conference held at Kusitawi Village, the home of our local Gnu Partner the Children of Strength orphanage.  Some 125 pastors, teachers and local leaders attended, and in honor of the event we planted the “Microloan tree”.  Fast forward 7 years and the tree has grown strong and healthy along with our local microcredit programs which have now funded more than 1,000 businesses and provide ongoing business credit to hundreds of local families. 

Both visual and economic proof that small initiatives well planted and cared for will grow into big results!
