PRES CLINTON TANZANIA
Every day, people walk in and out of our lives, sometimes without notice. But when an international political figure swings by your community, it’s hard not to take note. It was an exciting day when Bill Clinton, the former President of the United States, visited one of Plan’s micro-finance programs in Tanzania – a day many won’t soon forget.
Seeing A Powerhouse Partnership At Work
President Clinton witnessed the impact of Plan’s program, Banking on Change, which is a micro-finance program operated by Plan, CARE International, and global bank, Barclays. Banking for Change supports community-led micro-finance programs to encourage men, women and youth to develop the economic skills needed through Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLA). Through these groups, members pool their money and resources into a group savings, and take out loans to help create small businesses and support their families.
