An integral part of our mission at Sierra Cares Foundation, is to empower women by helping them to empower each other. Many times, women lack the ability to support themselves or their children, simply because that they cannot afford to start a businesses. This creates a cycle of problems when they seek a loan from someone who offers it at impossibly high interest rate. This can lead to exploitation to anyone who cannot repay the loan. Many lenders are aware of these limitations and can exploit the financial system to keep a woman in debt to them.
We are helping to reduce this barrier to women by offering 0% interest loans, that can be paid back on a scaled basis and is individually tailored to each woman. This micro loan can help them get out of poverty and not stay in its vicious cycle.
The program also allows for them to give back to other women, by using the funds they will not have to pay in exploitative interest rates, to help them to build their business and support their families, without the fear of losing their goods to unethical lenders.
Sierra Cares Foundation is not a financial institute and has no interest in making money off the backs of the people in our program. Our goal is to walk alongside them and to encourage them to pay it forward within their communities and to strengthen them wholly.
Please consider donating to our micro loan program and follow the women that you are supporting on their journey out of exploitation and poverty.
